Chen Sheng-Wen


Chen Sheng-Wen was born in Taichung, Taiwan in 1993, and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication Design from National Yunlin University of Science and Technology. His artistic practice primarily involves the use of everyday waste materials, which he employs through labor-intensive techniques such as embroidery, knitting, and darning. Through these methods, Chen Sheng-Wen creates intricate collages that explore the complex relationship between humans and nature. His most important solo exhibitions include Lives Between Us, BACK_Y, Taipei (2022); Their Birth in Grief, but Not Ashes, YIRI GOODS, Kaohsiung (2019); As Dead as a Dodo, YIRI ARTS, Taichung (2018). Selected group shows include Subzoology: 2020 Taiwan Biennial, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung (2020); Keelung Ciao – Find Your Flow, Chen-Pin Fishing Harbor, Keelung (2019); NIBUNNO Environment Conservation, NIBUNNO, Tokyo (2018) and HOPE- Charity Exhibition, YIRI ARTS, Taipei (2016).

Sobre el espacio

YIRI ARTS was founded in 2014 in Taipei, Taiwan. With a strong focus on contemporary arts and the intent to champion the spirit of possibility, the gallery regularly presents pioneering exhibitions, off-site projects, publications, provides art consulting, aiming to generate an inclusive shared language around both locally and globally to bring people together. Located in Neihu, Taipei, this same experimental vision leads to a historic 1980s factory, covering 1,200 square meters, being repurposed into the multi-cultural hubs made up of three exhibition spaces.

Since its inception, the gallery has been dedicated to providing early support and exposure to important artists and fresh new talents from Taiwan and abroad, working closely with them to potentially create new bodies of work and significant exhibitions. The principles behind the gallery aim to generate new possibilities of exhibition beyond the physical space of the gallery itself and is geared toward challenging public and personal thoughts on urgent issues related to our nature and the environment with art that will resonate around the world.
