WUNDERKAMMER—E Chen’s Architectures and Art Installations
by Taipei Fine Arts Museum
Location: Taipei Fine Arts Museum
Artist(s): E CHEN
Date: 30 Jan - 14 Mar 2010

E Chen’s Wunderkammer is a selection of the artist’s installation sculpture and architectural proposals made over the last ten years. Themes in his work are closely associated with renewed explanations of man-made objects and spaces, subversion of the functional aspects of man-made objects and the opposition of consumer culture. These works have continued to evolve over the course of different exhibitions and presentations, becoming completely different, standalone artworks. Although E Chen has made every effort to promote his architectural proposals over the last ten years, they have continued to drift between the imagination and professional world of actual architecture, ultimately remaining only on paper. If we understand these unrealized architectural proposals as a means of constructing a world, but not reaching their intended goal, then these meditations on the constructed connection between architecture and society will be extremely fascinating.
