TING Chaong-Wen is a multi-media artist who creates spatial installations with images, video and sound. His works are often inspired by personal experiences and often include prefabricated objects that become part of a specific historical narrative in the exhibition context. By deconstructing, interpreting and reinterpreting our collective history, he explores prevailing values and historical conflicts resulting from, for example, colonialism or migration. TING explores cultural collective memory and their cross-border significance and finds surprising and innovative ways to make their relevance to society tangible.

Recent exhibitions include “Asian Art Biennial”, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan (2019); “High Tide 17 Fremantle Biennale”, Artsource, Fremantle (2017); “Nakanojo Biennale 2017”, Former Hirozakari Brewery, Japan (2017); “Citation From Craft”, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa (2017); “Taipei Biennial 2016: Gestures and Archives of the Present, Genealogies of the Future”, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei (2016).
