​侯怡亭

HOU I-Ting

1979年生於台灣高雄,現居及工作在台灣台北,畢業於國立台南藝術大學造形藝術研究所,國立台北藝術大學美術學系。

侯怡亭的創作結合刺繡與數位影像與錄像藝術,不但挑戰我們對日常生活中影像的觀看方式,同時轉譯乍看平淡的視覺經驗。她對於過去與現今女性勞動力在社會經濟體系底下的狀態尤其感興趣,透過創作探究身體與影像之間隨著時間而不斷變動的關係。她的限地製作刺繡行為表演,更體現對資本主義社會中勞動過程的批判。

 

重要展歷包含:《We Now Stand — In Order to Map the Future》,金澤21世紀美術館15週年展(金澤,日本,2019)、第九屆亞太當代藝術三年展智利巡展(La Moneda文化中心,聖地牙哥,智利,2019)、《編織身分 — 侯怡亭個展》(西班牙國際攝影既視覺藝術節,薩拉戈薩歷史中心,薩拉戈薩,西班牙,2019)、《冷鍊 — 侯怡亭個展》(台北市立美術館,台北,台灣,2019)、第九屆亞太當代藝術三年展(昆士蘭美術館,昆士蘭,澳洲,2018)、《當代藝術的工藝援引 — 台灣當代織品藝術交流展》(金澤21世紀美術館,金澤,日本,2017)、《代工繡場》(TKG+ Projects,台北,台灣,2015)等。

Born in 1979, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan.

 

HOU I-Ting received a degree from the Taipei National University of the Arts, and later obtained a MFA degree in plastic arts from the Tainan National University of the Arts.

 

By blending imagery and video with embroidery, HOU challenges the way we identify imagery in everyday life, while reconfiguring an otherwise prosaic visual experience. She is especially interested in the female labor condition in the socioeconomic system of the past and of today. Her practice pivots around the changing relationship between the body and imagery over the course of time. In particular, she transforms her on-site sewing performance into a cultural critique on the labor process within a capitalist society.

 

She has exhibited internationally, including We Now Stand — In Order to Map the Future, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan (2019); Contemporary Art from Asia, Australia and the Pacific: A Selection of Works From QAGOMA’s Asia Pacific Triennial, Centro Cultural La Moneda, Santiago, Chile (2019); Tejiendo identidades (Weaving Identities): HOU I-Ting Solo Exhibition, PHotoEspaña, Centro de Historias, Zaragoza, Spain (2019); Cold Chain: Hou I-Ting Solo Exhibition, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, Taiwan (2019); 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia (2018); Citation From Craft — Taiwanese Contemporary Textile Art, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan (2017), and Sewing Field, TKG+ Projects, Taipei, Taiwan (2015).
