Chu ChunTeng


Born in 1982, Taipei Taiwan


2008 - 2010  MFA in Fine Art, Goldsmiths, University of London, London, UK                                                                       

2002 - 2006  Shih Hsin University, Department of Film, Taipei, Taiwan


Chu made a number of short films and was selected for international film festivals when he was still in university. Upon receiving his B.A. film degree, he shifted his direction towards fine art, working on film, video art, and installation. Chu is deeply concerned with the dilemma of the individual in modern society, in particular individual existence, social hierarchy, and political conflicts, which are revealed throughout his art practice.


His work has been widely presented by major film festivals and international art institutions, including The 28th Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival, The 19th Singapore International Film Festival, The 7th Seoul International Film Festival, and the 2014 Taipei Biennial — The Great Acceleration, Kunsthaus Esse, Shanghai Contemporary Art Museum, Glasgow Center for Contemporary Arts, and Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art.


In 2013 Chu ChunTeng founded a co-working art space "Polymer" in Taipei, in an attempt to promote interdisciplinary art practices and artistic experiments.
