Address:No. 2 Wuchuan West Road Section 1, Taichung, Taiwan
As one of the artists selected by the 2014 Creative Digital Art project launched by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (NTMOFA), Chen Yun-ju (陳韻如) will hold a solo exhibition at the Taichung-based museum from March 8 through May 25.
Titled "Time in Between,” the two-month show features the spatial and temporal overlap of Taipei and Paris through digital images and projections. The main display uses a clock that is divided into 12 projection panels, in which each panel marches forward to provide audiences with an alternative mode of perception.
The utilization of a 360-degree circular exhibition space allows the artist to simultaneously present different people and places in a condensed composite of 24 hours from the two capital cities. The juxtaposition of the masses with the individual, of the fast with the slow, and of Parisian cityscapes with Taiwanese people, enable the viewer to re-conceptualize the presence of time.
Ultimately, "Time in Between” poses the question of whether the present moment in time is newly born and independent, or are all experiences affected by previous knowledge and emotions.
