STANDING PINE and Chi-Wen Gallery would be glad to co-curate for ACK a spin-off of the current galleries research program, presenting four international renowned artists from different countries, with artworks specifically conceived for the fair; Jawshing Arthur Liou, Yu Cheng-Ta, Noritoshi Hirakawa and Joël Andrianomearisoa. The show aims to create the space where various meanings of artworks resonate together and making a dialogue among them beyond the concepts of individual works.
Jawshing Arthur Liou (Taiwan, 1968), currently lives and works in USA, is an artist with a background in photography, digital media, film, and journalism. Liou works with lens-based materials and electronic imaging to create installations depicting mental and surreal spaces.
Yu Cheng-Ta (Taiwan, 1983), currently lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan, is working primarily with non-professional actors in staged performances. Yu has developed a body of work that deals with the interstitial spaces and humorous misunderstandings that arise when different languages and cultures collide.
Noritoshi Hirakawa (Japan, 1960), residing in New York since 1993. His creation proposes to extend the capacity of human perception for furthering this culture, pushing the boundaries of perception, altering aesthetic views for the future.
Joël Andrianomearisoa (Madagascar, 1977) currently lives and works between Antananarivo and Paris. His works are often made from textiles, paper, sometimes wood, or unexpected objects that cause a non-explicit and abstract emotion and stories, which people perceive yet cannot describe in words.
