Huang Hsin-Chien 'Shanghai Shall We Dance?' interactive installation

Huang Hsin-Chien

TAIWANESE ART SHANGHAI BIENNIAL
In Huang Hsin-Chien’s work, Shanghai, Shall We Dance? located in the public space of the Shanghai Museum of Art, viewers are invited on to a typical Shanghainese dance floor for a spontaneous dance. As the dancers move the images of foreboding highrise buildings surrounding them melt and transform into the images of the viewers dancing together. The direct real time link between the dancers’ movements and the artwork allows viewers to be participators in the creation of the artwork and according to Taiwan Contemporary Art Link explore their perceptions of and connections with urban space.

Huang Hsin-Chien has an unusual background. Having studied Mechanical Engineering at National Taiwan University and Art at the Art Center College of Design at Pasadena USA he has become fluent in both technology and traditional art. He has exhibited work at the Hong-Ga Museum, Taipei Artists’ Village and the National Fine Arts Museum in Taiwan as well as the MiArt Contemporary Art Fair in Milan.

Fascinated by interactive art using digital media, Huang exhibited a work called Experiment Exchange in the Natural Circuits show at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York in 2007. Experiment Exchange consists of a screen showing a silhouette of animated white birds which move in real time according to the actions of the viewer, a form of collaborative art in which viewers work together with technology and remotely from the original artist.

Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair and Shanghai Biennale a double bill in September 2008

Posted by artradar on August 2, 2008


SHANGHAI CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR AND BIENNALE 9-13 SEP 2008

After a relatively well-received debut in 2007 – despite controversy surrounding the dealings of its former art director Pierre Huber – ShContemporary art fair will return to Shanghai from 9-13 September.

ShContemporary 2008 will gather together around 130 exhibiting galleries from 25 countries, ranging from Australia to the United Arab Emirates. Some 30 artists from the Asia Pacific region will also be presented in the Best of Discovery section, and there will be an outdoor exhibition of sculptures and installations at the host venue, the Shanghai Exhibition Centre.

For art lovers, this year’s fair comprises part of a double-header – with the 2008 Shanghai Biennale, entitled TransLocal Motion, taking place at the same time.
