MAM Screen 012: Chen Chieh-Jen

2019.11.19 [Tue] - 2020.3.29 [Sun]

The video works of Chen Chieh-Jen are produced in collaboration with a variety of people including the economically disadvantaged, such as laborers and the unemployed, as well as migrants and activists, and deploy a mixture of archival footage and fiction to depict the traumas and predicament of people on the peripheries of Taiwanese society. Works shot on location in the architectural relics of previous regimes, such as a leprosy hospital built during the Japanese colonial period, and the remains of a factory that once helped to sustain the Taiwanese economy, shed light on the situations of people at the mercy of various forms of government, and revive forgotten pasts in the present as unfinished conversations.

This program made up of two terms presents a selection of Chen’s works including Factory and The Route from the Mori Art Museum Collection, ranging from the artist’s early career to more recent output.
