« Trans- » 2019

A Solo Exhibition by 趙書榕 CHAO Shu-Jung 

 

Past, present, future, and, all in between.

 

I construct the city like kind of mental panoramic landscape.

The sea acts as a mirror to reflect the conditions of human beings.

What is the influence of the landscapes we encounter in the construction of our personality and our regard ? Our Identities are in constant change through Time and Space, formed by the personal experience of each of us. Are our drifts similar to those of the continents : imperceptible but powerful movements causing flaws and encounters, fusions but also disappearances of lands ?

Through images and sounds, I hope to bring spectator’s attention to various different subjects, such as nostalgia, nomadism, displacement, Psygeography, pursuit after one’s utopia, Heterotopia.

Shu-Jung CHAO (Taipei, 1982)  is an interdisciplinary artist.
Her works focus on the ideas behind fundamental human experiences such as memory, travelling/time travel, culture/language and aspects of consciousness, as well as “globalization” issues in the public sphere.
In 2009, Shu-Jung graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Bourges with a Master’s degree in Fine Arts. In 2011-12, she participated in the Post-graduate programme at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratif de Paris. In addition to participating in several international art festivals and exhibitions (in France, Germany, USA, Singapore and China), Shu-Jung is the only Taiwanese artist whose work was selected by the French- German Arts and Culture TV (ARTE Video Night), broadcast on ARTE, the Cinematheque of Toulouse, the Digital Culture Art Center in Paris (La Gaîté Lyrique ) and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. In 2017, her first solo exhibition in Japan Sound! Soundings!! was broadcast on NHK and RSK TV. In 2011, she was selected for Taiwan’s Emerging Artists by the Ministry of Culture (Made in Taiwan – Young Artist Discovery).
