Curatorial Statement
WANG Chun-Chi's work develops ideas that lead into a collaborative process-based working relationship with artists to examine issues she considers crucial, such as: critically assessing contemporary culture, investigating the way meaning is constructed and endowing the world with complexity at a time when the surface is rarely scratched and time is short. Her curatorial voice endeavors to make people re-think, slow down, delve beneath the surface and to excavate rather than simply consume. It does not summarize or offer answers, rather it asks questions that lead to contemplation, discussion, and new thoughts about the world around us.
