Chi-Chuan Yang’s art and reading are personalized murmurings that have been extended to call upon the audience’s own similar experiences, seeking to open up memories related to time, space, objects, and events. The core of this artwork is based on a personal memory databank, which is publically displayed through writing and reading out loud. Fragments of memories that have been deposited for a long time are thereby turned into chapters and stories consisting of contents connected to family, politics, animals, food, and other areas related to humanities and social sciences.
Taking a continued artistic expression from recent writing and sound installation, Two Houses of Sixty Years Old is inspired by the old and stylish interior design of the gallery space. Daylight sheds from the windows and shades the space, the curves, the exquisite decorations in between the columns and the ceiling. A recall of renovations of the artist’s own house. When the artist writes down the process of restoring the old house, nostalgia and sentiments over the lifeless matters are murmured and stack layers of discourses and speculation about life in the heart.
