Chi Kai Yuan 2017 Solo Exhibition

April 8, 2017 - June 4, 2017

Outside of art circles, the artist CHI New-York goes by the name CHI Kai-Yuan. Juxtaposed against his more renowned nom de plume, this unfamiliar name has the appearance of a secret code to the artist’s private life. This eponymous exhibition takes the name “CHI Kai-Yuan”, a proper noun yet unencumbered by projected meaning, as the title of this 2017 solo exhibition. The featured works reveal a constant cycle of memory and craft in his personal experience, and are a reconsolidation of his individual artistic expression. CHI New-York simultaneously transitions into his role as artist in the cultural arena while he attempts to use himself as a vehicle of documenting the Other in a “mutual vehicle” in reciprocal response to the Other. The documentary photographic style approaches the realism of events and objects, while various technologies in the installation capture personal sensory experiences at different junctures.

You are the Sunshine of my Life - 2017 Treasure Hill Light Festival

March 25, 2017 - May 14, 2017

Coming from the concept of love and relationship, I invited ten pairs of lovers - who also are artists - to collaborate. Many decades ago, there were a group of people decided to build their homes at Treasure Hill, and they lived here with their loved ones. Treasure Hill was actually a living space, and now it is an ocean for artists to create.

STUPIN.ORG Kuo I-Chen Solo Exhibition

February 18, 2017 - April 15, 2017

STUPIN.ORG, Kuo's solo exhibition at TKG+ Projects, is the first embodiment of the studio-swap residency. In converting the gallery space into an artist's studio, and bringing together the cradle for art, the finished work, and the commercial end, Kuo investigates the relationship between the artist, the work, and the space it occupies. For this exhibition, Kuo swaps studios with Portuguese artist Filipe Cortez, who works across such mediums as performance, oil painting, sculpture, and installation in surveying the ephemeral landscape of memory, time, and the city through his site-specific work. Cortez and Kuo will continue their respective practices in each other's hometown — Cortez in Taipei, Taiwan and Kuo in Porto, Portugal — and connect the two cities through their experiences of cultural exchange and networking.
 
On the platform of STUPIN, every artist's studio is a residence, and every artist can be a local cultural guide. Through the act of sharing, every city can be a studio for you. The pronunciation of "STUPIN" is similar to that of "stupid," which echoes the foolishness of an artist absorbed in art making; the same foolishness that leads to unexpected outcomes. Hence the STUPIN philosophy: to face the future with an open mind, to keep moving forward into the unknown. Be STUPIN! Be smart!
