CHEN I-CHUN
LAST UPDATE : 2018.10.15 / EDITOR : avatintern
46 artworks / 190 exhibition

Born in Nantou in 1980, I-Chun Chen entered the Doctoral Program in Art Creation and Theory at Tainan National University of the Arts in 2010 after receiving her master’s degree from the Graduate School of Arts & Technology at Taipei National University of the Arts and her bachelor’s degree from the Division of Oil Painting in the Department of Fine Arts at Taipei National University of the Arts in 2005. She is best known for her artistic practice in video art, experimental animation/video,interactive art, multi-media art, and painting, focusing on folk stories and social issues about the industrious areas, marginalized areas, or the lower middle class. The idea of her artworks is to weave a giant map of the history of rural villages and industries, which carries individual’s experiences between reality and illusion. It also attempts to create a conversation with the realistic/real society. The poetic image and the romantically lighthearted music express the impossible dream.

God, Please Save Me!
A prayer room is built in the exhibition hall. When the audience enters it, they find people from Thailand, the United States, Ecuador, India, Burkina Faso, the Philippines, Finland, and other countries asking in their native language: “Hey! SIRI, what is war?” I aim to ask questions to impel everyone to find answers. When a viewer enters the space, sits in the priest’s chair, he instantly becomes a knowing everything Ethernet God in a smartphone who can answer to the people looking at ...

L’Enfant
I was invited to create a new piece of work to be presented at the New Cathedral in Linz in 2017. I remembered that Hitler was born in Linz and recalled the story of how he failed to enter art university. If more children had been given a chance, maybe Hitler would have succeeded in the university entrance exam? Maybe the structure of the world and the sad story would have looked differently? As a child, I burst into tears when I saw Roberto Benigni’s (b. 1952) movie Life Is Beautiful. ...

A Child Walking in a Maze
In the performance, an Asian woman dressed in white is hiding in a dark corner, she wants to play the role of stone, she listens with fear to the smoke of war, she runs wildly and shouts loudly. In the video, the flames of war immediately turn into a street fight. She is telling herself not to be afraid; this is just a hide-and-seek game that she used to play with her brother when they were kids. She feels helpless but picks up the gun and fights, yet unfortunately dies. In the second a ...
