Chu ChunTeng

 

Born in 1982, Taipei / London

Chu ChunTeng received his M.F.A. from Goldsmith University of London.

 

He made a number of feature films and participated in international film festivals when he was still in university. Upon receiving his B.A. film degree, he shifted his direction toward fine art, working on installation and video. Chu is deeply concerned with the dilemma of the individual in modern society, in particular man’s existence, social hierarchy, and political conflicts, which he explores in his art practice.

 

He has exhibited extensively, including 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, which promotes interdisciplinary art practices and artistic experiments, and served as its first executive director until 2015.
