Chou Yu-Cheng (b. 1976, Taipei, Taiwan) lives and works in Taipei. He follows a practice that builds, across multiple materials, a subtle critique of mass media, institutions and the mechanisms that produce them. Questioning the generation of value in the art world, his works unveil strategies of exhibition-making and art production. Through conversations with companies, museums or factories, he shapes a minimal yet deliberate set of intellectual and aesthetic ‘tricks’, which ultimately play on the properties of art, object and space. 

Chou was the recipient of the Taipei Art Award, Taiwan (2012), as well as the Taishin Annual Visual Art Award, Taichung, Taiwan (2011). Recent shows include New Museum, New York, USA (2015); Asian Art Biennial, Taiwan (2015); Taipei Fine Art Museum, Taipei, Taiwan (2014); Queens Museum, New York, USA (2014) and Taipei Biennial, Taiwan (2012).
