Yuan Goang-Ming
LAST UPDATE : 2017.02.15 / EDITOR : tcaa
32 artworks / 164 exhibition

Born in Taipei, Taiwan, 1965, Yuan Goang-Ming is a pioneer of video art in Taiwan. Since working with video in 1984, he has received a Master’s degree in Media Art from the Academy of Design, Karlsruhe (1997). He is now one of the foremost Taiwanese artists active in world of International Media Art, with a background of comprehensive media art training. He currently holds a post as the Assistant Professor at the New Media Arts program of Taipei National University of Arts.

Combining symbolic metaphors with technological media, his work eloquently expresses the state of contemporary existence and profoundly explores the human mind and consciousness. In 1992, his work Fish on a Dish was shown to great acclaim in Taiwanese art circles, while The Reason for Insomnia (1998) captured the attention of international audiences. City Disqualified (2002) holds a place in the history of Taiwanese contemporary media art. These works are still being exhibited around the world.
After 2007, Yuan has been exploring new possibilities for video art. Disappearing Landscape (2007) opens with a new format of moving images, combining video art and cinema, displaying the fascinating theatrical-everyday. The upcoming exhibition Before Memory, which will be on view in 2011, combines many years of his in-depth ideas towards moving images, using simultaneous projections and other methods in exhibiting large works of “time and memory,” “body and perception.”

Yuan has been invited by major art museums, art centers and galleries to participate in various exhibitions across Asia, Europe, and America. Among these include: Representing Taiwan in the 50th Venice Biennale (Taiwan Pavilion), 010101: Art in Technological Times at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, ICC Biennal (1997) in Japan, Guangzhou Triennial (2005) in China, Liverpool Biennial (2004) in United Kingdom, Auckland Triennial (2004) in New Zealand, Singapore Biennale (2008), Taipei Biennial (1998, 1996, 1992), and Gwangju Biennale (2002) in South Korea. His work is collected by art museums domestic and abroad, in private collection and various organizations. He has also been on the Collections Committee of Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei Arts Award, Taipei County Arts Award, Public Art, Venice Biennale (Taiwan Pavilion) and the juror of Asia Society Arts Award in the United States.
