Wu Chien-Yi (1987-)

 

Born in Taichung, Taiwan, Wu Chien-Yi specialises in collage art and mixed media installations. She received her M.F.A. degree from the Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts in Tainan National University of the Arts. She was among the artists listed by the Ministry of Culture in Art Taipei 2016 – MIT:Young Artist Discovery. Known as the winner of 2012 The Arising Artist Award of New Taipei City for her ‘5100 Mini Store Project’, Chien-Yi is also on the finalist of  ‘The 13th Taoyuan Contemporary Art Award’ in 2015, the reputable ‘Taipei Arts Awards’ in 2011 as well as 2010 Kaohsiung Awards. She has also been invited to exhibit in numerous exhibitions, among which are the 2016 & 2012 Taiwan Biennial and the 2014 MT Expo, and her works are in the collections of the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts and Cultural Affairs Department of New Taipei City Government.

 

Wu Chien-Yi’s art is the after product of various approaches regarding keen observations and experiments. Having washi tape as the medium of expression, Chien-Yi reintroduces the familiar objects around us in a new light. The artist recaptures the consumption-driven economy and the soaring growth of e-commerce today to reveal a truthful insight of our era through her seemingly unfocused collage art. In 2015, Chien-Yi held her solo exhibition ‘Window View Series’ at Taichung City Seaport Art Centre and partook in ‘Residential Memory: Wen Meng-Yu and Wu Chien-Yi Duo Exhibition’ by Telling Arts. She is recently awarded the top prize in ‘2015 Exhibition of The Newly Emerging Artists in Taiwan’ held by Taichung City Seaport Art Centre for her Window View Series, inspired by the old window patterns in Taiwan. The series is now part of Seaport Art Centre collection. Her innovative approach continues to bring forth the distance between a truer reality and the world we are in.

吳芊頤利用和紙膠帶便於攜帶,且半透明可重複黏貼的特性,拼貼出向日常生活取材的各式商品,以扁平幾何的樣貌呈現時代的記錄,拼貼在看似紛亂的外表下,卻能閱讀出視覺焦點的主客關係,以及重複序列、結構幾何的堆疊趣味,種種網路消費文化的符碼被吳芊頤研究梳理,構成另一種嶄新的語彙意象,這種從旁觀察社會,而用作品與外界連結溝通的考察行為,吸引觀者主動思考作品物件所隱含的社會意義,創造出有故事的內容,將時空的意象封存於視覺風景中。
