ARTIST INFO

b. 1980, Taiwan

In his multi-disciplinary practice, Huang Po-Chih focuses on exploring issues related to production, agriculture, manufacturing, and consumption, and from there undertakes criticism on a socio-economic level. His works envision a macroscopic backdrop of trade and exchange, examining a cross-section of complex industrial structures all the way down to the individuals who partake in this structure.

Huang Po-Chih adopts various roles in his projects. He has perused and documented his family heritage, stories about his mother’s ancestry and family members; as a producer, he reclaimed barren farmland in order to grow lemon trees; as an entrepreneur, he drafted and executed proposals; as an artist, he has manipulated the system and resources of the art world. His projects are not only presented as objects of our observation but they also inherently take on potential and enduring social significance.
