KUO YUPING

 

KUO Yu Ping  was born in 1986 in Nantou, Taiwan, and she received her master’s degree in trans-disciplinary arts from Taipei National University of Arts. Kuo’s art practice includes a diverse range of genres, including painting, video, installation, and performance. She uses art to express the missing elements or insufficiencies between her own experiences in life and what is considered Big History, including issues involving her personal memories, the Cold War, and the circumstances she encounters. Using the notion of “missing or lacking” to bring forth already determined historical predicaments, Kuo uses trauma and disappointments to support a medley of metaphors, which has become a notable feature in her artworks. She seeks to push or correct “existing” concepts, in order for them to be more aligned with reality and the local mentality. Through her endeavors, she searches for a subjective narrative. Kuo has been working along with dual trajectories in her practice. One concerns how her personal experience and action connect to history and collective memory following a rational criticality and attention to modernisation and politics. The other reflects her inner world featuring a realm of eerie fantasy and intuitive expressions with vibrant and fluid visual language. Her recent solo shows include: How Real is Yesterday, TKG+ Project (2019); My Little Black Book, Michael Ku Gallery (2017). KUO is the Finalist in the 2018 and 2015 Taipei Arts Award, and participated in the 2018 Taiwan Biennial and 2016 Taipei Biennial.

 

Kuo currently lives and works in Taipei.

郭俞平

1986年生於臺灣南投,臺北藝術大學藝術跨領域研究所畢業。作品多以繪畫、錄像、裝置與行為等複合形式,表達自身的生命經驗與大歷史之間一種缺憾或匱乏的關係,如個人記憶與冷戰以及自身處境等問題,以「缺」顯化既定的歷史難題,以創傷與缺憾支撐繁花般的隱喻為其創作特質,試圖把「存有」的概念推往現實與在地的修正,尋思出一種主體的敘事。郭俞平的藝術實踐展開了雙重路徑。以理性批判、對現代化進程與政治議題的關注,其創作將個人生命經驗和行動,對應連結到時代歷史、集體記憶等的框架上。另一方面,她也有不同的作品系列以活潑流暢的視覺語言去傳達個人內心世界的圖像,包含了怪誕奇幻的想像和更多直覺性的感性表述。近日個展包括:TKG+《昨日有多真實》(2019)、谷公館《小黑書》(2017)。郭俞平曾入圍2018和2015兩屆台北獎,並曾參展2018年台灣雙年展、2016年台北雙年展。
