Yin-Ju Chen, ‘The Empress’, 2016, Liverpool Biennial

Yin-Ju Chen (b. 1977, Taiwan) lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan. Chen’s primary medium is video, but her works also include photos, installations and drawings. In the past few years she has focused on the function of power in human society, nationalism, racism, totalitarianism, collective thinking or collective (un)conscious. Her recent projects also engage in the relations between cosmos and human behaviour. Chen is particularly interested in the way that humans respond to signs and signals such as those generated through use of Tarot cards. This print, which represents The Empress in a Tarot pack, is the first of an entire set of Tarot cards that Chen intends to create, by hand.
