Jazz Szu-Ying CHEN

陳思穎,1990出⽣於台灣⾼雄,現今創作與⽣活於荷蘭鹿特丹。在倫敦藝術⼤學中央聖⾺丁學院求學期間,以硬筆繪畫、銅版蝕刻版畫結合西⽅解剖醫學與東⽅歷史神話等視覺意象,創造個⼈獨樹⼀格的創作語彙。早期創作最廣為⼈知的為《山海經》系列,運⽤視覺風格強烈的哥德風格與拼貼技法,結合動植物解剖細節與神話怪物意象⽽發展的創作系列,也是其⽇後新系列創作的發展基礎。這些場景主要敘述⽂化衝突、對於迷信的個⼈觀點,或是關於台灣⽂化的反思,做為映照當今動盪社會的註腳,以純粹的⿊⽩重新詮釋繽紛世界下令⼈省思的社會議題。陳思穎從過往經典中萃取出現代語彙,重新編寫符號,在反映當代現狀的當下,亦破除既定印象的隔閡,診斷著也窺探著所探尋的真象。

陳思穎每年定期在台灣、英國兩地進⾏展演活動。2015年,與倫敦 Chelsea & Westminster Hospital A&E Wing成為長期合作夥伴。2017年,在伊⽇藝術⾼雄空間展出個展「山海種族」。2018年,與倫敦唱⽚公司Fabric / Houndstooth合作所備受好評的專輯“In Death’s Dream Kingdom”封⾯,並與愛爾蘭籍電⾳創作者Eomac 合作⿊膠專輯“Reconnect” 封⾯。其個⼈創作嘗試以醫學、⾳樂等全⽅位的呈現形式,將個⼈意念滲透進這波濤洶湧的當代社會之中,提出個⼈的獨特思考觀點,並與其對話。

Jazz Szu-Ying Chen (b. 1990) is a Taiwanese artist currently residing in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. She graduated from Central Saint Martin’s BA Fine Art course in 2013, and MA Art & Science in 2015. Jazz’s subjects of focus span over her interest in the beauty and grotesque within the field of anatomy/medical historical imageries, to Chinese mythologies and folklore such as “Classics of Mountains and Seas.” She manipulates the dissected anatomical imageries and creates tableaus with mythological monsters, dissected bodies, and botanical details. The tableaus are meant to tell stories regarding the cultural clashes, her views on superstition, reflections from her Taiwanese roots, and they also function as social commentaries on the currently turbulent contemporary society.
