Ting-Jung Chen’s artistic praxis revolves around the mapping of memory and identity in the acoustic territory and the power system. Her solo exhibition, titled “This Is a Complex Sentence” (十六分之一休止符後) unfolds along the texts of psychological and sonic warfare, seeking to investigate the collective dialogue and tension among these texts under tension under the influence of affective tonality. Comprising multi-channel sound, kinetic installation and sculpture, the large-scale spatial installation in the venue is strongly reminiscent of rhetoric forms and symbolic imagery that not only demonstrate the associations between different depictions and criteria for expression, but also explicate the processes of understanding and construction in the system. The artist reinterprets the “objects” produced from historical memories in section: either by deconstructing the templates of symbolic cultural artifacts, or by identifying how the subtle aspects of personal emotions lead to collective physical synesthesia. In the venue, the demarcation lines drawn by frequency, rhythm and perception create plural narratives and an alternative scale of space-time, thereby reorienting the visitors in this info-sphere. The works in this solo exhibition recite ambiguous personal narratives in collective memories, and meanwhile explore the very formation of discipline in the mapping.
