Born in 1985, Taipei, Chen Liang-Hsuan obtained her MFA degree in 2016 from the Film, Video, New Media, and Animation Department of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Chen’s art predominately experiments space-time travel that seeks to connect together different time segments. From behind the video camera, she applies images on narratives and sounds, and creates spatial installations, and her approach of mixing experimental documentary and home video results in hyper-real states that blend together everyday life and personal memories that are uniquely Taiwanese.
