As a photographer, Chen Chin-Pao begins to receive attention from his Moments of Beauty: Betel Nut Girlsseries. The Circumgyration Projectis an attempt to investigate the delicate boundary between reality and memory by taking pictures of the written documents and different poses of the person being shot. The Heaven on Earths series focus on the little temples and cemeteries adjoining local residences; using “house” as a metaphor, Chen portrays Taiwan as a co-living land for the gods, humans, and the deceased,whereas the Ordinary Householdseries highlight the contemporary Taiwanese daily lives.

Circumgyraton: Tsung-Yeh Project

Chen Chin-Pao's Presentation of Arts Residency

Circumgyraton: Tsung-Yeh Projectis a continuation of Chen’s previous projects of memory collection and re-enactment. Scaling up from school campus to a community, Chen interviews people from Tsung-Yeh about their childhood memories, he then takes photos of the interviewers’ descendants or local school kids re-enacting the memory scenes. Tsung-Yeh Projectdoesn’t focus on the interview documents, rather on the two images placed side by side, representing “present” and “past” in every work. Chen makes the photographs of memory re-enactment black-and-white in order to highlight the infinite passing of time. Instead of triggering reminiscenceof the past, the works have become the objects that summon personal memories not only from the actual experiencers, but also from every audience as he/she looks at them.
