ACAW Presenter - Yu Cheng-Ta

Asian Contemporary Art Week (ACAW)

Performance Lecture

Yu Cheng-Ta adapts a playful approach to language in his video works, which involve realistic situations acted out in live performance to communication the artists’ concept of “living theater.” For his project Practicing Live, Yu invited a select group of people to rehearse and then act in a play that he filmed using different camera angles. The family is played by real life art professionals instead of actors. Each role overlaps with each participant's real-life identity, creating tension and uncovering long-hidden realities and dynamics that today's young artists must face in the art world.
