"Guetteurs - Focus France - Taiwan,” a joint exhibition by five Taiwanese and six French artists, will be held at the National School of Fine Arts of Lyon (Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts de Lyon) from Jan. 18 through Feb. 18.
The exhibition will focus on sound art, an interdisciplinary art form that has been diversely developed in recent years. As one of the most transmissible mediums, the curated sounds will offer audiences a brand-new experience in how sound can be redefined, deconstructed, and reformed by artistic creativity.
Chang Yung-ta (張永達), a resident artist at Lyon this year, will present "Relative Perception N°2,” a sound installation that incorporates iron, stainless steel, customized electric heater, water, solenoid valve, microchip controller, and computer to explore how humans sense sound, vision, temperature, and space.
Born in 1981, Chang is a Taipei-based artist whose works encompass various forms such as experimental sound, visual art, installation, and performance art. The attentive Chang presents the subtle changes, phenomena, and sounds of daily life through his installations.
In addition to Chang, Taiwanese artists who had previously served residency at Lyon, including Chiang Iuan-hau (江元皓), Wang Fu-jui (王福瑞), Lin Chi-wei (林其蔚), and Wang Chung-kun (王仲堃), will also have their works showcased in this exhibition.
Many of the works like "River (匯)” by Chiang, "Electromagnetic Soundscape (電磁音景)” by Wang Fu-jui, "Tape Player for Lyon (磁帶音樂(音腸) -里昂版)” by Lin, and "Sound of Suitcase (開箱作業系列)” by Wang Chung-kun were developed during residency.
Since 2010, the Digital Art Center, Taipei (台北數位藝術中心) has collaborated with Grame-Cncm et Ensba de Lyon, a distinguished French school of fine arts, to exchange artists through residency programs to promote the creation of sound and digital art.
