Video Bureau Series: Reality Show

When: 14 Dec 2014, Sunday 13:30
Where: UCCA Auditorium

 Yu Cheng Ta

Guest Speaker: Yu Cheng Ta


During the seventh installment of the Video Bureau lecture series, young Taiwanese artist Yu Cheng Ta introduces his idiosyncratic body of work. Like watching a series of experiments, his films capture impromptu performances by non-professional actors humorously reacting to the language games devised by the artist. The influence of reality game shows is evinced in the artist's choice of cinematography and manner of editing.

Featured in the "The Social Factory," the Tenth Shanghai Biennale hosted at the Power Station of Art, Practicing Live uses a multi-camera approach to expose actors in the midst of exchanging roles during the making of a family soap opera. With an acute sense of humor, Yu Cheng Ta's works confront many of the dilemmas and realities facing artists today, his actors continuously dismantling the distinction between real and fictive modes.


Guest Speaker: Yu Cheng Ta
Currently based in Taipei, the works of Yu Cheng Ta (b. 1983, Tainan) explore the human body in transformation. He has participated in numerous exhibitions, including: "The Sixth Taipei Biennial " (Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, 2008); "Queens International 2013" (Queens Museum of Art, New York, 2013); and "The Fifth Melbourne International Biennial" (Melbourne, 2012).


Guest Speaker: Yang Beichen
After receiving a degree in film theory from Université Paris X, Yang Beichen is currently a PH.D. student at the Beijing Film Academy.
