Micro Micro Revolution


Micro Micro Revolution | 微型小革命

3 July - 6 September, 2015

Associate Curator: Lu Pei-yi

Micro Micro Revolution aims to explore the power of art as a vehicle to address social change in Taiwan through three socially-engaged art projects: A Cultural Action at the Plum Tree Creek, Plant-Matter Needed and 500 Lemon Trees. These ongoing process-based, participative projects use art as a vehicle for addressing environmental issues, as a form of resistance, and as a platform for exchange.

This exhibition will introduce visitors to environmental concerns in Taiwan such as land-use, pollution, and sustainability. The Micro Micro Revolution event programme will provide a platform for discussion around the key aspects of the exhibition.

Micro Micro Revolution is supported by Spotlight Taiwan and the University of Salford

Ting-tong Chang


Clockwork Dreams | 原形機器人 

Residency Studio
Artist: Ting-tong Chang
Date: 17 July - 2 August, 2015
Preview: Thursday 16 July 2015, 6-8pm - click here to RSVP

Former “Breathe” artist-in-residence Ting-Tong Chang returns to CFCCA to showcase a recent body of work investigating automata (self-moving machines) as a means to explore utopian visions. Ting Tong constructs talking automata presenting absurd dialogues exploring socio-politically loaded issues, whilst a series of drawings chart a journey through a mythical landscape.

The exhibition opens with the newly commissioned donation box So Far So Good to replace the much loved Pay-as-you-go (2012) currently situated by CFCCA's front desk. Every time a visitor donates a coin, the fish-like automaton will simulate swimming whilst delivering a speech revealing a personal story from life underwater in the Thames River.

Ting-Tong was born in Taiwan and received his MFA at Goldsmiths, University of London where he currently lives and works.
