“Fragmentation of Historical Perspectives” is about the phenomenology of objects. Using objects, works and documents, Chiang Kai-Chun “remakes” memory – through media such as mosaic, painting, photography and installation art, he tries to restore the historical multiplicity and fragmentation of the subject.
In the exhibition titled “Third Person Traveler” in 2016, artist Chiang Kai-Chun recalled his experience travelling in foreign land. Using everyday objects to connect with his travels, he contemplated the tracks he had made from a distance. However, as the global pandemic placed restrictions on physical travelling and exchanges, the artist returned to Taiwan and began thinking about “artistic production” in the midst of the epidemic, which prevented him from experiencing foreign countries on site.
Chiang focuses on how the existence of objects helps to build human relationships, rather than the objects themselves. By engaging in a dialogue and conversation through the curating, he both examines his home in a geographical sense and points to where his heart belongs. Chiang’s translocal works are products of social relations. By researching cultural changes and historical artefacts, they reveal the great culture that once existed in specific locations.
At his solo exhibition “Fragmentation of Historical Perspectives” at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum in 2022, Chiang Kai-Chun attempts to trace history with objects. Integrating archival work and the aesthetics of art, he reconstructs the fragmented history, inspiring viewers to think about their own origins and where they belong.
