Artist: Kyoungjae Cho
Curator: Jia-Zhen Tsai (Taiwan)
Born in 1979, following his graduation from Suwon University’s Design Studies and Sangmyung University’s Photography Department, He completed the Meisterschuler course at the Academy of Fine Arts Munster. Recently, after being selected as a featured artist in 2016 of Project Space Sarubia, he held a personal exhibition in 2017 called <Broken Edges>. Also, he participated in Project Space Babel’s <Babel II> project in 2017 in Berlin, Germany, during the second part and conducted another personal exhibition simply using that of light and sound. Currently, he is working on expanding the scope of photography which is his major work.
Rather than the expandability of each project, his perspective is grounded in the process of making that expandability become visible at the actual exhibition locations. The pictures play the role of serving as a crucial medium to express that expandability. The personal exhibition scheduled to open at the Amado Art Space/Lab in November 2018, is an extension of that very process.
1979 was born in Taiwan, Jia-Zhen Tsai is an independent curator now, and used to run a non-profit art space tamtamART TAIPEI with other four members since 2013 June until 2015.
In 2011, she got the idea that art is not only making more works and exhibitions after making few exchanging and different kind of scale of exhibitions over 4 years. She desired to figure out the contemporary art development sight and context in Taiwan,so she stared interviewed lots of artists as a field research since the end of 2011.She focused on 1)moving-images, 2)new generation to be the beginning points of study.
She and four friends organized the non-profit contemporary art space “tamtamART TAIPEI,” which focuses on new media, including video and installation, while also developing collaborations with other individuals and organizations. Aside from the experimental film festival in 2014, there will also be a collaborative exhibition with Polish independent curator Mateusz Bieczyński, and an artist talk with Southeast Asian artists, organized with the online Taiwanese contemporary art magazine “No Man’s Land.”
