Curated by: Ting-Ting Cheng
Venue: ISE Cultural Foundation
‘Home and Away’, an exhibition I took part in New York at the ISE Cultural Foundation, negotiates what the idea of ‘home’ means when living in an era that is increasingly globalisation. The exhibition features works by six other international artists including Ting-Ting Cheng, Chu Yin-Hua, Barney & Lucy Heywood, AlexandraWolkowicz, and Joanna Zylinska who experienced living and working outside their homeland. They use photography, video, and installation ‘to discuss poignant questions about spatial identity, geographical belonging, and the passage of time’, said curator of the exhibition Ting Ting Cheng who studied and working abroad for many years. Linking it to politic, economic and personal encounters the exhibition offers a poetic reflection on the movement of bodies and minds across geographical and cultural boundaries in the age of globalization.
I consider that the piece is one of many potentials to ‘draw a portrait’ of a person, or to describe the character of his habitant space. The endless repetitive and accumulative activities manifest a sense of infinity and meditative process that reflects in some of my work. Every Corner of My Flat embarked on the idea of a habitant home but along the way I made connection with my inner home, a mental landscape.
