ティン チャオン ウェン CHAONG-WEN TING

Born in 1979, living and working in Tainan Taiwan. Ting is an installation artist and a visual designer. His artworks are often inspired by his own experiences and often include ready-made objects, which through the context of a particular exhibition, become part of a particular historical narrative. Thus artist deconstructs, interprets, and reinterprets our shared history in surprising and innovate ways. He examines dominant values, historical conflicts such as colonialism, migration, and cultural collective memory and their crossborder existence.
“I think about how materials can disrupt the flow to a made-up storyline, or to break the boundaries between different annotations of history. The artwork does not tell the story actively-rather, the story exists in every part of the artwork when displayed. Each object is an unique script, containing clues from a variety of subjects (art, industry, urban planning, politics, and economy). The inherent qualities of the artwork become a means to convey. No proposition or critique of history is made, and no borrowed or transference of definition is suggested through the artwork. Instead, the composition within materials directly references spirituality and culture, whereas the artwork introduces elements of uncertainty, unpredictability, and fluidity to the material.”
1979年生まれ。台南市、台湾を拠点に活動している。丁氏は、インスタレーシヨン作家でありビジユア ル・デザイナーである。自身の経験からインスピレーシヨンを受けている丁氏の作品には、レディ・メー ド・オブジエが含まれており、展覧会の特定の文脈によって、ある種の歴史的な筋の一部になっていく。故 に、我々が共有している歴史を意外で革新的に脱構築・解釈・再解釈しているのである。最も有力な価値、 植民地化・移住・文化に対する集合的メモリー等の歴史的な争い、そしてそれらの横断的な存在を考察して いる。
「作品において、様々な素材が仮定した筋の流れをどのように混乱させられるのか、または歴史の異なる注 釈の間の境界を壊すことに興昧がある。作品が活動的に筋を語るのではなく、作品のいわゆる要素の全てに その筋が存在している。それらは、独自の脚本を持ち、様々な題目(アート、産業、都市計画、政治、経済 等)によって筋のヒントを与える。作品の固有の特徴が、意昧を伝える媒体になる。歴史に対する提案や批 評をせず、また定義の借用や移転が作品を通して行わない。その代わり、素材の配置によって精神性と文化 を亘接参照し、暖昧さや予測不可能性、流動性の要素を挿入している。」
