Chi Kai-Yuan (b. 1983) was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, and received a Master of Arts at the National Changhua University of Education. Chi’s work concerns space, objects, and mass public. In daily situations, these things are the vibes to inspire creativity, which Chi sees as targets, and get close to them through various techniques at different distances, including linguistic exchange, site-specific production, event actions, critical discourse as well as other artistic methods to interpret.

In other words, this means Chi’s works tend to produce different appearances and forms due to the differences in targets he cope with, which Chi refer to this state as the term “mutation.” Mutation is disconnected change within a short period of time, and has strange forms of growth and capability of sensing, in which there must be internal conflict and technical adjustment. In these differences and changes, Chi develops ways of flowing / deconstructing / dispersing in his artistic approaches. He has participated in artist residencies at Bamboo Curtain Studio (Taiwan, 2012), Treasure Hill Artist Village (Taipei, 2013), Pier-2 Art Center (Kaohsiung, 2014), and 18th Street Arts Center (Los Angeles, 2015). In 2014, Chi won the First Prize of Taipei Arts Award and is recently awarded by Asian Cultural Council (ACC) for the residency program in New York in 2016.

Blooming without Reasons
Treasure hill is a multi-layered, labyrinthine settlement, in continual and symbiotic evolution with its location. Its irregular polygonal surfaces appear extremely illogical, yet each one is situated, divided and configured in exactly the right position. This presents a stable structure, composed by dynamic counterbalancing, and interconnected elements. As you look at every incline, every step, platform, lawn and garret, you see strange angles, lengths, breadths, heights and surfaces ...

Exercise Trilogy
Exercise Trilogy was made at the scene at Treasure Hill Artist Village in Taipei, Crane Gallery in Kaohsiung, and Five Piers in Tainan respectively. By exercising in new ways (badminton, table tennis, Hula loop) in space of different quality, the artist observed how a body develops new means to cope with space and objects that seems familiar yet strange.
