[ISEA2008] Artist Talk: Klaus Hu – Space and narrative identity (in the global forum)

Artist Statement

As this is an artist presentation, I would like to focus upon questions upon space, narrative identity, representation, narrative concepts, research and organic container, which in the tradition of painting is a self-representational model. By juxtaposing architectural and timebased strategies, how do these strategies in contemporary art and media arts shift, alter and transform local/global cognition and perception.

Implemented will be samples of my work from 1987 till 2007 as paper/lecture/ slide presentation.

The paper/lecture/presentation shall open into a workshop with students upon space, narrative identity, representation/territory, narrative concepts, research and organic container/maps.
