Art-in-Production 3: Chen, Che-wei + Enkaryon (印卡)
(見面會16) 生產(中)的藝術3:陳哲偉+印卡
July 1st, 2016類型: Event


The project Yang-Shen-Yuan is named for a psychiatric hospital built in the 1930s during the period of Japanese rule in Taiwan. It was when the government established Taiwan’s first institution for confining and treating the mentally ill, which represented the first restrictions of modern social order in Taiwan. Chen intends this issue as the first part of ongoing observations of psychiatric patients who have been marginalized by injustice in the course of modern social development. Using the unfortunate plights of these individuals as the focus of his work, Chen discusses individual and collective memory from the perspectives of history, society, physical space and the body. His goal is to present the politics hidden within history and the system.




Born in Yilan in 1986, Chen, Che-Wei now lives and works in Taipei. In 2011, he graduated from the School of Fine Arts, Taipei National University of the Arts with an M.F.A. Chen’s works often use parables to cross different kinds of boundaries, interweaving reality and fiction, jumping in time and space and creating plots and scenarios with images, sounds, texts and objects. He was shortlisted in the 2014 Taipei Arts Awards and his exhibition application was accepted by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum in 2015. In 2013, he was selected by the Cloud Gate Dance Foundation’s Wanderer Project and went to Istanbul in Turkey. From 2011 to 2016, he took part in residency programs in Melbourne, Berlin and Busan.
