Chia-Ru Chen, a taiwanese artist who lives and works in Taichung. After receiving her B.F.A degree in Sculpture, Installation, and Multimedia from Taipei University, she focuses her lens on the issues of natural environments, and the conflicts between city and countryside. Her art projects not only explore the meanings of the daily objects and the surroundings as the real presence of now, but considering the path of its history. Chen bases her work on the observations of links between spaces and people in her daily encounters. Bringing art to local communities, she constantly creates art work to explore all kinds of possibilities, and let the process of creating be like an open and diverse dialogue. For her,”Art” should be more than a delicate display in the gallery, but a process containing mutual interactions.
