Chen Sung-Chih

Born: 1978

Hometown: Nantou

Lives and Works: Taipei

 

Chen Sung-Chih (b. 1978) was born in Nantou, Taiwan, currently lives and works in Taichung, Taiwan. He graduated from the Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts, Tainan National University of the Arts. Chen’s mixed-media installations always start with a concept aimed to represent the often-neglected fragments and sensibilities in life, expressed through manipulating the physicality of materials. His previous works often focus on the specific events of everyday life, incorporating time-related narratives from his own life and society. These everyday materials are randomly assembled and combined by the artist, transforming into works that transcend beyond their coarse, cold material attributes, becoming integrated with densely complex psychological elements that give them a sense of warmth and poetry. Throughout the years, Chen has participated in various international artist residencies and exchange programs in the USA, Korea, UK, Egypt, France and Taiwan. He was awarded First Prize for Espace Louis Vuitton Taipei Audition, the 12th Visual Arts Prize of Li Chun-Shen Foundation, the Top 7 of Visual Arts in Taishin Arts Awards (2004), Honorable Mention in Taipei Arts Award (2003) and the S-An Cultural Foundation Creative Arts Award (2001). Since 2001 Chen has held solo exhibitions in various museums, art spaces and art fairs, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, IT Park, Taipei, Project Fulfill Art Space, Taipei and Art Basel Hong Kong. In recent years, he has participated in the PyeongChang Biennial at Gangneung Green City Experience Center, South Korea (2017), 'Taiwan Biennial' at Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung (2016), 'Stopping the Sun in its Course' at Ghebaly Gallery in Los Angeles, USA (2015), 'Asia Cruise' at Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei (2013), 'Flourishing and Flowing' at the National Art Museum of China, Beijing (2011), and 'Time Unfrozen' at Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei (2010).
