Eine der dort ausstellenden Gallerien ist, als mit themennahen Objekten beschäftigt, der besonderen Aufmerksamkeit wert:
Hier zunächst ein Portrait der Gallery:
"We do invite our online visitors to make good use of this unique opportunity to view teasers of the video works by performance artist Victoria Sin, which includes the video documentary of their celebrated performance of ‘If I had the words to tell you we wouldn’t be here now’ on 16 January 2019 at Chi-Wen Gallery. This performance, commissioned by Chi-Wen Gallery, would later that year be re-enacted at the 58th Venice Biennale as well as at other important shows around the world. Another video highlight is ‘Watermelon Love’ by the Watermelon Sisters, a duo composed of artists Yu Cheng-Ta and Ming Wong.
It was only last year at Art Basel Hong Kong that we introduced Su Misu, a young Taiwanese artist with deep involvement in Taipei’s BDSM and LGBTQ+ scenes. LGBTQ+ rights in Taiwan are regarded as some of the most progressive in Asia and both male and female same-sex sexual activities and marriage are legal. As part of our ongoing commitment to emerging artists from Taiwan, we are excited to again include Su Misu’s in our online presentation."

"Victoria Sin (b. 1991) currently lives and works in London, UK.
Victoria Sin is an artist using speculative fiction within performance, moving image, writing, and print to interrupt normative processes of desire, identification, and objectification. Drawing from close personal encounters of looking and wanting, their work presents heavily constructed fantasy narratives on the often unsettling experience of the physical within the social body. https://chiwengallery.com/victoria-sin/"
- Auch in Deutschland arbeitende Künstler sind vertreten:
"Ming Wong builds layers of cinematic language, social structure, identity and introspection through his re-telling of world cinema and popular culture in his videos, installations and performances. With imperfect translations and reenactments, he casts an actor (often himself) as every character in a story. Wong attempts to unravel ideas of ‘authenticity’, ‘originality’ and the ‘other’, with reference to the act of human performativity. He looks into how culture, gender and identity are constructed, reproduced and circulated, as well as how it all feeds into the politics of representation. Though untrained as an actor, he has embarked on an artistic practice that is at once highly influenced by cinema and is in constant dialogue with measures of performativity, gender, and difference. Recent projects have become more interdisciplinary, incorporating performance and installation to flesh out his exploration of cultural artifacts from around the world."
Viel Freude beim weiteren Kunstgenuss wünscht
