ABOUT HIS WORKS:
Huang Meng-Chin’s work focuses on the perception of the form of the body, often integrating mixed media, installation, and figurative works. By exploring the core concept of body images, it develops avenues of awareness from the concept of body, and considers the visual framework of bodily reconstruction using technological media. This means changing the appearance of objects, images, sounds, waves, or other forms provoking an attraction that defies traditional definition. This construction uses the topic of the body to re-create human senses through the arrangement of spaces, by means of a dialogue of flowing images; the perceptual narratives of bodies in time, and space are joined. This includes imaginary human temperature situation, drawing reactions and emotional responses from viewers. The work is filled with a unique visual vocabulary and emotional tension, creating an encounter with emotional energy being released, and a multiplicity of body images from the relationship between form and displacement.
