We’re pleased to welcome Taiwanese artist Chen I-Chun 陳依純 and curator Helin Luo, who are here as part of a residency exchange organized by Waley Art 水谷藝術, and supported by Grey Projects and the Ministry of Culture, Republic of China (Taiwan) under the Southeast Asia-Taiwan Cultural Exchange Collaboration Emerald Initiative.
Trained in computer programming and kinetic machinery, curator Helin Luo is an interactive artist and recipient of numerous Interactive Art awards. Artist I-Chun’s practice predominantly involves interactive and multi-media art, painting, and experimental animation/video. Her works often focus on folk stories and social issues existing in industrious and marginalized areas, as well as amongst the lower-middle class. As a pair, I-Chun and Helin have been developing interactive new media projects together.
During their stay here, I-Chun and Helin will give a talk about their works on August 13th, before concluding their residency with an exhibition of their new collaborative work in early September.
