Artist Talk: Cheng Ting Ting at Tate Modern, UK, 28 Mar 2014 March 21, 2014 Cheng Ting Ting

28th March: Independent artistic initiatives and cross-cultural communication – Edward Sanderson, Elain W. Ho, and Ting-ting Cheng

The second salon focuses on contemporary Chinese art. It will start with a paper by Edward Sanderson and Elaine W. Ho, entitled ‘Who Goes and Where art? Measures of Distance in Artistic Research, from here to China’. Their research focuses on independent artistic initiatives and collectives in China, and the ongoing, contested struggle of production, replacement and representation these groups have. There will also be an artist’s talk by Ting-Ting Cheng, a London-based Taiwanese artist. In her work, Cheng analyses language as the symbol of identity in order to examine communication between different cultures. By studying the representation of others in mass media, she explores how British society reacts to ‘foreignness’.

台灣藝術家鄭亭亭,近日成為首位受邀於英國泰德美術館所舉辦週五系列沙龍座談之講者。奠基於2013年系列沙龍的成功,今年泰德美術館將著眼於當代中華藝術與文化的層面舉行3場沙龍座談,鄭亭亭將於3月28日晚上6點與Edward Sanderson、Elain W. Ho進行《創造藝術空間:獨立藝術計劃與跨文化交流》主題座談。

此場對談著重在當代中國藝術,首段以Edward Sanderson與Elain W. Ho所撰寫的論文《Who Goes and Where are? Measures of Distance in Artistic Research, from here to China》,深入探討中國獨立藝術計劃、共產主義與競爭性的產出困境。次段鄭婷婷將以旅居倫敦的台灣藝術家之觀點,鑽研大眾媒體下不同文化的象徵,探究英國社會對於「外來性」的反應,在鄭亭亭的作品中可以看到她利用語言作為自我認同的表徵,用以檢視在不同文化下人與人之間的溝通模式。
