Bio / Statement:

Chang, Yun Han is the 2017 winner of a 4 month residency at RU sponsored by the Taiwanese Ministry of Culture. In her installations, the artist aims to reveal the subject of daily-ness and transforming this daily-ness into something new through the investigation of notions of borders,the  subtle invisibilities of our  surroundings, and common experience. As an example of her process, In one of her latest projects, Back to the shore (2016), she  made interviews and collected  stories of local people  from the island of Penghu (or the Taiwanese cost) who once left for a foreign land, and rewrote  their shared stories and distant memories of their youth under a different time and space. A central question for the artist is how as individuals we link to society and how we see ourselves being perceived and interpreted.
