Installing Environment: Responding to Social, Industrial, & Economic Landscapes
World economies and their impact on the cultures and landscapes we live in are progressively taking front and centre in news, current affairs, and especially the minds of artists. Yi-Chun Lo is a strong example – exploring these relationships and presenting her findings through depictions of exported raw materials and crops to better understand their role of economy in culture.
PICA is honoured to host Yi-Chun Lo as part of upcoming exhibition Unfolding Acts and as part of a pre-exhibition welcome, we join curator and artist for an in-depth discussion. Guest Curator Ashley Yihsin Chang will facilitate an in-conversation with Yi-Chun Lo to discuss research-based practice in producing installations that respond to the social, industrial, and economic landscapes of specific geographies in this critical insight into “Installing Environment”.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Yi-Chun Lo (b. 1985, Taipei, Taiwan), received her MFA in Sculpture in 2010 from the National Taiwan University of the Arts. Since then, she has exhibited her work widely in Taiwan. More recently, she has travelled to other countries such as Japan, India, Holland and the United States with grants from the Taiwan government’s Ministry of Culture as an artist in residence to produce site-specific works and expand her artistic practice to community and environmental art projects.
