Electro-cución
“I am fascinated with the physicality of low-tech manual devices and mechanical systems. I am aroused by their shapes, sounds, and gestures, which are beautiful descriptions of their own functions. Industrial materials—stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, plastics, and rubbers—seduce me. Artifacts of disappearing industry, I find strange and beautiful shapes in their debris that allude to sexual operations, violent actions, mysterious purposes. Their potential triggers my thought process.”

TechnoShamanism
I reclaim spaces for underrepresented communities with the use of technology, ritual and the speculative. Whether it be a citizen “sousveillance” suit to monitor police activity, a Techno-Shamanistic religion that virtually renders ritual, or archeological artifacts from future African cultures, I find it imperative to work collaboratively with other artists and local communities.

Ting-Jung Chen

Side Walk
By performing non-material and material elements in poetic arrangements with in temporal related spaces, Ting-Jung Chen discusses the tension between the subjectivityand the objects. By studying Today’s phenomena and reproducing “human’s relationship with cultural and industrial artifacts” in the works, she demonstrates in her aes-thetic practice a critical approach to „transformed identity“ and its makeshift dwelling.more
