Artist Statement

HSU Jia-Ling was born in Taipei. She has bachelor’s degree in both Sociology and Law from National Taiwan University. She majored in performance and video production at the Art Institute of Chicago. She finds inspirations for her works from everyday experience, collecting the experience and imagination of “freedom” and “restraints” from own relations with family, religion, and love, and embeds “dream” and “memory” into the works. She uses her body, space, words, objects, and sounds, to convert the unspeakable emotions within into perceptual vocabulary, creating a collage on the timeline to present fragmented and open narratives. In 2015, she was chosen by Ministry of Culture for two-month residency program at Hangar in Barcelona, Spain. Thoughts on the Residency Program: Hangar held “Paratext” regularly, inviting artists in residence to share creative processes. This activity on one hand broke the spatial barriers between individual studios, encouraging artists to interact and exchange with each other, it also on the other hand created a platform, allowing outside visitors to meet creative workers from different disciplines, and learn what inspired the works and their creative journeys. During Paratext No. 6 held on October 14, I had an opportunity to share the stage with three other artists. We each designed a fifteen-minute presentation. Christina Schultz from Germany extracted a segment of her exhibition in preparation, and broadcasted the experimental result of her layering sounds and images. Antonio Ruiz Montesinos from Spain gathered the files of his works to showcase diverse styles. Ciprian Homorodean from Romania showed the audience in a video how he repetitively practiced giving self-introduction in English, so that galleries, audiences, and curators from English-speaking countries could get to know him. In the video, Ciprian’s awkward expression after every time he made a mistake proved to be somewhat comedic, but I could relate to his experience very much. We both needed to learn to “speak English,” so that English could bring us to the “international” community. To find the proper English words to introduce myself, my brain often had to translate, consider, and correct the words I chose, and this process often times stopped my train of thought; sometimes I struggled to find the right words, and my brain was just blank…I looked frustrated, embarrassed, and clumsy. On the other hand, limitations of “spoken words” somehow drove people into developing ways of expressing themselves without language. Ciprian’s sharing became a foreshadowing, switching the receptive channels of the audience from Spanish to English, as I took over the last leg—a Chinese-speaking foreigner; I used “spoken words” in English, as well as “languages” beyond “spoken words,” such as photographs, objects, and performance, to introduce my past works, and my residency experience in Barcelona. When I was at Hangar, I was often told to “relax, go around and take a look.” Following the relaxed pace in Barcelona, I focused on experiencing the city’s rich cultural landscape. During this time, “relaxing” was my method of learning, and “inspirations” were ignited from the state of relaxation. Those seemingly “non-creative” activities enriched my life, and provided a “tender and soft” texture to the creative process, broadening my perspectives. On the other hand, Hangar’s software and hardware were very much up to date: cameras and recording devices, sound recording and mixing equipment, printer and 3D printer, they had pretty much all the things we needed. There were also professional personnel to provide technical assistance, encouraging artists in residence to boldly put forth our ideas and freely experiment with them. It was a very friendly creative environment. In addition to “experiencing the city” and “creating onsite,” I also wanted to have in-depth “local exchange.” If I could establish connections with local curators through Paratext, expanding the scale and space of display of the works, and meet audiences with different background, it would help me, or other artists in residence, to more comprehensively represent and showcase the residency experience.
