A Solo Exhibition by Chen Yin-Ju: Action at a Distance
Action at a Distance
7 March 2015~ 4 April 2015
Opening Reception: 7:00pm, Sat, 7 March 2015
Action at a Distance (2015) is the final chapter of my trilogy addressing the body, governments, and state violence. Like the previous chapters, As Above, So Below (2013-2014) and Liquidation Maps (2014), Action at a Distance expands and summarizes the metaphysical threads between invasive surgeries and instances of state violence.
In As Above, So Below and Liquidation Maps, I present mysticism and astrology as conduits for contemplating modern medical treatments and various massacres. Action at a Distance further elaborates the relationship between the macrocosm and the microcosm by exploring the philosophical consequences of quantum entanglement and the principle of correspondence.
Einstein called quantum entanglement “spooky action at a distance.” This chapter and its previous iterations ultimately describe a cohesive and interwoven universe, where science and pseudoscience are merely two complementary routes to understanding human life.
