Wu Chi-Tsung: Synchronicity 
Dates July 9 -October 1, 2023 
Artist Talk July 9 14:00 – 15:00
Venue 134 Jay Street, Katonah, NY 10536

The Katonah Museum of Art (KMA) presents Wu Chi-Tsung: Synchronicity, which marks Chi-Tsung’s first solo museum exhibition. The exhibition will focus on the artist’s most recent body of work, his Cyano-Collage Series, that seamlessly incorporates Eastern aesthetics with collage and photographic processes to create sublime reinterpretations of traditional Chinese Shan Shui (mountain-water) landscape paintings. A meditative video installation in the main galleries and an immersive installation in the project gallery will provide further examples of Wu’s diverse and innovative practice. On July 9, Wu Chi-Tsung will join KMA Executive Director Michelle Yin Mapplethorpe for an in-depth discussion on his dynamic and interdisciplinary practice. 

The Katonah Museum of Art is a non-collecting institution geared towards visual arts, located in Katonah, New York. From its inception, the KMA was committed to presenting exceptional art from all cultures and time periods. The founders’ decision to be a non-collecting institution resulted in a dynamic and flexible exhibition program, which remains one of the most distinctive features of the Museum.

Dust 002 At Art Basel Unlimited in Basel, Switzerland

Dust 002

Art Basel Basel, Unlimited Sector
Sean Kelly Gallery Booth U59
VIP Opening June 12, 2023
Public Dates June 15-18, 2023
Venue Messe Basel Messeplatz 10 4058 Basel Switzerland

This week, video installation Dust 002  alongside with new works from the Cyano-Collage Series will be presented at Sean Kelly Gallery’s booth at  Art Basel Unlimited, Art Basel’s pioneering exhibition platform for projects that transcend the classical art fair stand, including large-scale sculptures and paintings, video projections, installations, and live performances.

The Dust was initially created and debuted during Wu Chi-Tsung’s residency at in 2006, which marked his first solo exhibition in an art institution in the United Kindoms. Since then, the work has been exhibited in Germany, Luxembourg and the U.S.. It features a real-time streaming of the reflection of the circulation of dust particles moving in the room. As viewers progress through the space, disrupting the flow of air, the images of flickering dust change constantly and instantaneously creating a captivating relationship between artist and viewer, technology, and chance. Dust not only reorients us to the small beauties of the world but demonstrates our fundamental inability to perceive these phenomena without, in turn, affecting them.

Recently, Wu Chi-Tsung debuted his new work series, the Calligraphy Series, at 2023 Hengshan Calligraphy Biennial. Co-organized by Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts and Hengshan Calligraphy Art Center and co-curated by Wu Chao Jen Philip and Chen I Tso, the inaugural biennial, titled “Era of Principle and No Principle Interwoven”,  is centered on the development and future prospect of Chinese Calligraphy in the context of contemporary art.

‘In this video, a length of a paper is attached to a modified treadmill. After turning the treadmill on, Wu uses a brush to write on the moving paper. As he attempts to transcribe the famous Letter of Loss and Confusion ( Mil Whi) by Wang Xizhi, the speed of the paper’s motion makes writing futile as all characters turn out to be entirely illegible. The speed of the treadmill represents the rapid changes in the spatiotemporal setting. Not only is the brush unable to cope with the circumstances, but it is also incapable to engage in a meaningful conversation with the paper. ‘ (Quoted from curatorial statement by Hengshan Calligraphy Art Center)

Wrinkled Texture Series At Asia Society Texas’ Ongoing Exhibition

Summoning Memories: Art Beyond Chinese Traditions
Exhibition Period 
February 10, 2023 – July 2, 2023
Venue 1370 Southmore Blvd. Houston, TX

Wrinkled Texture 113 is featured in Asia Society Huston’s recent group exhibition “Summoning Memories: Art Beyond Chinese Traditions”. Curated by guest curator Dr. Susan L. Beningson, the exhibition highlights works by over 30 contemporary artists of Chinese descent who reinterpret traditions in dynamic and innovative ways.  Across painting, sculpture, and photography, these works were created by both established and emerging artists of different generations who use experimentation to draw on both Eastern and Western art-making practices and materials.The Asia Society’s is a global non-profit organization whose purpose is to navigate shared futures for Asia and the world across policy, arts and culture, education, sustainability, business, and technology.

Curator Susan L. Beningson stated, In his Cyano-Collage series, Wu Chi-Tsung explores the essence of Chinese ink landscape painting, moving beyond the brush to utilize innovative new materials and techniques. To create these evocative landscapes, Wu prepares layers of cyanotype photographic papers, a method used since the mid-1800s. He treats the xuan paper, the material used in traditional Chinese ink landscapes, with a photosensitive coating. The multiple pieces of paper are crumpled, exposed to sunlight, and then mounted into collaged images that resemble the craggy mountain peaks of traditional Chinese ink shan shui (mountain and water) landscape painting – thus creating ink landscapes without the ink. Wu replaces the traditional materials of ink and brush with experimental photography in order to reinvent the process. Wu has said that his landscapes resist any fixed reading: “They could be anything, because they are not representing any real landscape. This is the spirit of a Chinese landscape.. The best works always come from some kind of coincidence… Most artists have a strong ego. We try to control our work. But the more you try to control it, the more likely you lose the possibility. Let the work grow in the way it should.”

皴法習作113》正於亞洲協會休士頓分會最近的群展《召喚記憶:超越中國傳統的藝術》中展出。本展由客座策展人Susan L. Beningson博士策劃,集中呈現了三十餘位華裔藝術家的當代藝術作品。作品涵蓋繪畫、雕塑、攝影等類別,均實驗著結合東方與西方的藝術傳統與材料,以創新的方式重新詮釋著傳統。亞洲協會總部位於紐約,是美國一個非牟利組織,創辦宗旨是向世界傳播亞洲文化。

策展人Susan L. Beningson介紹道,「在《氰山集》系列中,吳季璁探索了中國水墨山水畫的本質,運用創新的材料和技術超越了傳統筆觸。為了創造這些意境深遠的山水畫,他使用光敏劑處理宣紙,這是傳統中國水墨山水畫所使用的材料。這些宣紙被揉皺,曝露在陽光下,然後拼貼成山峰嶙峋的山水圖像,與傳統中國水墨山水畫頗為神似。吳季璁用實驗攝影取代了傳統的墨水和筆觸,他不用墨水便創造出了水墨山水對傳統書畫進行了當代的重新詮釋。藝術家表示,他的山水畫抵抗任何固定的解讀『它們可以是任何東西,因為它們不代表任何真實的風景。這就是中國山水畫的精神。最好的作品總是來自某種隨機性…大多數藝術家都有很強的自我。我們試圖控制自己的作品。但是你越想控制它,你就越有可能失去可能性。讓作品按照它應有的方式成長』。」

The work is constructed of numerous transparent plastic boxes whose shadows resemble geometrical skyscrapers when a moving light casted on. The ordinary materials used in this artwork remind viewers of the realistic world; however, it leads people to a further imaginary scene. Chi-Tsung introduces, “there is another invisible world in which we live every day. It is made up of electronic equipment, programs, networks, media and information, and I call it ‘Crystal City’… It is becoming our new spiritual home in the contemporary world”

Presented by Galerie du Monde, Wu Chi-Tsung’s new works will be shown at the inaugural edition of Art SG. Founded by The Art Assembly, an affiliation of major international art fairs with a particular focus on the Asia Pacific region comprising Taipei Dangdai, India Art Fair, PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai and the forthcoming Tokyo Gendai, the new international art fair will feature over 150 of the world’s leading galleries, from Singapore and across the globe. Art SG offers a meeting point in Southeast Asia for collectors from the region and beyond to convene and engage with one of the world’s most dynamic cultural landscapes.

Among the new works from the Cyano-Collage Series and the Wrinkled Texture Series specially created for the new fair, it is noteworthy that the Wrinkled Texture – Folding Screen 002 marks the artist’s first attempt to compose on a traditional folding screen. The series applies the classic cyanotype technique to xuan paper. During this process, the artist treats xuan paper with a photosensitive coating that is then crumpled and exposed to sunlight, revealing images that bring to mind the mountainous landscapes often found in Chinese shan shui paintings. Folding Screen 002 was created amidst continuous rain where light, the key catalyst, was insufficient. The artist adjusted the exposure under the low light conditions and eventually achieved the delicate and subtle palette seen in this work.

本週,世界畫廊將攜吳季璁《氰山集》及《皴法習作》系列新作亮相首屆新加坡國際藝術博覽會(Art SG)。藝博會由旗下包括台北當代、印度藝術博覽會、影像上海藝術博覽會及東京現代等國際藝博會的The Art Assembly聯手瑞銀集團呈現,將匯聚來自全球30個地區逾150間全球頂級世界畫廊,為東南亞及世界各地的藏家提供了齊聚一堂的機會,共賞世界上最有活力的文化景觀。

本次值得注目的新作《皴法習作 屏風之二》是吳季璁首次嘗試於大尺幅日式屏風上進行創作。該系列作品使用氰版攝影法之原理,將感光材料塗佈於宣紙上,在陽光下曝曬,過程中不斷調整重塑紙張的皺折,而後水洗定影而形成宛若山巒般的「筆觸」,對於光照有著相當敏感的需求。而本次製作過程中,藝術家在陰雨連綿、光線不足的條件下摸索曝光技巧,最終呈現出淡雅細膩而幽微的色調。

Para Site’s 2022 Fundraising Auction has come to a fruitful end. Together with Galerie du Monde, Wu Chi-Tsung has donated his Wrinkled Texture 127 to the auction, whose proceeds will directly support our exhibitions, programmes, and educational initiatives.

It produces exhibitions, publications, discursive, and educational projects aimed at forging a critical understanding of local and international phenomena in art and society. 

Wu Chi-Tsung began the Wrinkled Texture series with the intention to reinterpret the traditional texturing method called cun fa in traditional Chinese landscape painting. Instead of using ink and brush, Wuemploys the classical photographic technique cyanotype, to render the textures.

香港Para Site藝術空間的2022年籌款拍賣會於近日圓滿落幕,其中,吳季璁聯手世界畫廊捐贈了《皴法習作之一百二十七》,其拍賣所得將用於支持藝術空間的展覽、公共項目及教育活動。本次拍賣會還展出John Armleder、Antony Gormley、邱志傑、趙剛等國際知名藝術家作品。

Para Site是香港領先的當代藝術中心,亦是亞洲地區歷史最悠久、最活躍的獨立藝術機構之一,致力於推出展覽、出版、研討會與教育項目,提出對本土與國際藝術及社會生態的批判性思考。吳季璁的《皴法習作》系列意在重新詮釋中國傳統水墨畫中的皴法,其中,他使用氰版攝影技術取代筆墨,呈現出山石般的紋理。

Sean Kelly Gallery will present Wu Chi-Tsung Solo Presentation at the ADAA Art Show in New York as the artist’s debut at the Art Show.

Founded in 1962, ADAA is a national non-profit membership organization of art galleries that promotes the highest standards of connoisseurship, scholarship, and ethical practice in the industry. In the classical and elegant neo-Gothic building of the Park Avenue Armory, the exhibition will feature works of art from the Renaissance to the present, including oil paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings and photographs.

The Art Show is distinctive for its focus on solo exhibitions since its inception, allowing galleries to present a comprehensive overview of an artist’s career and explore their aesthetic connotations. This year, 55 of the 78 participating galleries will present solo exhibitions of artists.

This is why Chi-Tsung is particularly looking forward to this solo exhibition. With a historical anchor crossing from the classic to the present, as well as the refined and sophisticated aesthetic taste, ADAA’s focus is in alignment with Chi-Tsung’s professional training and artistic pursuit, where he was trained in the traditions of calligraphy, ink painting, watercolor painting and drawing at a young age, and reflects these time-honored idioms in his contemporary practices. 

With new works from the Cyano-Collage Series and a work from the Still Life Series, the solo aims to reveal how Chi-Tsung’s work reflects “the influence of traditional aesthetics in his contemporary works, and at the same time critically consider how the development of media and technology affect the relationship between people and the world.

Artnet featured Wu’s work as one of the 7 must-see works to seek out at the ADDA Art Show. As described by editor Eileen Kinsella, “So much goes into the creation of Wu Chi-Tsung’s meditative, serenity-inducting Cyano-Collages, such as this giant fan-shaped one, which anchored the works in the solo presentation of the booth, created specifically for the show.”

Venue Via San Domenico, 11 10122 Torino Italia

Invited by Davide Quadrio, curator of the exhibition who is renowned for working closely in the East Asian art scene over decades, Wu Chi-Tsung’s Drawing Study Series will be presented at Buddha10: A Fragmented display on Buddhist visual evolution at MAO – Museo d’Arte Orientale di Torino (Museum of Eastern Art). 

The MAO exhibition will feature collections from different geographical areas and expand through a wide chronological period in the museum’s collection, among which Buddhist sculptures from the Chinese collection will be the highlight, with the aim to offer different perspectives and reflections on the museum and its proud collection of Asian art. The antiques will be echoed by a number of contemporary art practices and new works including the Drawing Study Series. The series originated in 2021 inspired by Chi-Tsung’s collaboration with TAO ART SPACE for his solo exhibition in Taipei, in which he uses a flashlight as a paintbrush to capture the silhouette of ancient Buddhist statues and records the tails of light in space, allowing the outlines of the statues to gradually appear. The gentle movement and the dim glow have created a yūgenism (profound grace and subtlety) atmosphere, symphonizing the timeless quality of the statues that were created centuries ago.

本次展覽中,策展人從博物館引以為豪的亞洲藝術收藏中精選出來自不同地域、跨越古今的展品,並同時展示與之呼應的當代藝術作品,旨在為亞洲藝術史提供新穎的解讀視角與反思,此觀念與《寫生習作》的創作初衷不謀而合。《寫生習作》佛像系列起源於2021年吳季璁與台北藝術空間TAO ART SPACE的合作,他用手電筒作為畫筆,捕捉古代雕塑的輪廓,記錄空間中的光跡,輕柔的光線緩緩照亮昏暗的佛像,使其輪廓逐漸顯現,創造了一種幽玄的氛圍,映照出佛像幾個世紀以來的永恒與靜謐。

This June, the first Cyano-Collage Series created on a bronze panel will be exhibited at Sean Kelly Gallery’s booth which marks Wu Chi-Tsung’s debut in Art Basel in Basel. As the development of the series, the artist has experimentally worked with aluminum panels in 2021 and bronze panels this year as a substitute for wooden baseboards to achieve better durability of the works. The metal quality of the baseboard creates a distinct reflection that leaks through the Cyano-Collage landscape and broadens the potential of the series.

New works of Wu Chi-Tsung’s will be showcased in Taipei Dangdai Art Fair represented by Galerie du Monde. This will be the premiere of the Cyano-Collage Series on aluminum in Taiwan. Speaking of the Wrinkled Texture Series and Cyano-Collage Series that both replace the traditional ink and brush used in Chinese Shan Shui painting with experimental photography, Chi-Tsung once shared that “I started to do Cyanotypes simply because I am not satisfied with digital photography nowadays’, and the process of making the two series ‘really similar to how ink painters do Chinese landscapes: they are constructing a world they want to project themselves inside.”

Acquired by Santa Barbara Museum of Art

Still Life 012 – Buttercup Tree and Still Life 014 – Yellow Mai Flower, both acquired by Santa Barbara Museum of Art, are now on view in the group exhibition Mediated Nature of the museum till December. In an exhibition review in Santa Barbara Independent, it is stated that  the works have “challenged our media consumption habits at a different level.” 

“Chi-Tsung enacts a faux-pas in an entertainment landscape where plants are mere mute extras meant to signify exoticism. His shots linger on a stationary plant for more than six minutes. In his work, the medium of video is camouflaged as painting. Although celebrating the mundane can be an oversubscribed concept, the elaborate care in Chi-Tsung’s work — the crispness of the colors, the subtle mist-like atmosphere enveloping the plants — bends time. The viewer wonders, ‘Have I been watching this flower for six minutes or 20’?

When the medium changes, so does the message. Chi-Tsung’s “Still Life 012 — Buttercup Tree” carves new depths within our experience of mundanity. A shivering leaf becomes a noteworthy event, and mist traveling slowly along a plant’s wet roots becomes an erotic experience.”

Still Life

吳季璁的兩件錄像作品《小品之十二 彎子木》和《小品之十四 黃梅》被美國聖塔巴巴拉美術館收藏,並將於美術館群展《媒介化的自然》中展出至十二月。當地媒體《Santa Barbara Independent》對該展覽的展評稱《小品》系列影像作品從不同角度挑戰了人們的媒介使用習慣。


當媒介改變時,其傳遞的信息也隨之改變。季璁的《小品之十二 彎子木》為我們的日常經驗帶來新的感知可能:一片顫抖的樹葉成為令人注目的焦點,而沿著植物的濕潤根部慢慢遊移的水霧則為畫面增添了調情意味的氛圍。」

Financial Times Features: Something in the Water — the Rise of Aquatic Art

 Cyano-Collage 078, 《氰山集之七十八》,85 x 200cm, 2020
Acquired by the UBS Art Collection 

In a recent article featuring the rise of water-themed art in the Financial Times, Wu Chi-Tsung’s Cyano-Collage Series was introduced in detail as a supporting argument for the potential cultural and philosophical depth of Art of this theme. 

It was stated that Wu Chi-Tsung didn’t originally intend his cyanotypes to be about water. He began the works with mountains in mind, but soon saw that his photographic blue spaces resembled tumultuous waves. As the series grew he began to explore ways the works could be interpreted as traditional Shanshui paintings, ocean views and natural landscapes. 

Chi-Tsung shares that “I was thinking I could try the possibilities of combining earlier techniques and materials, and hoping I could work with Xuan paper.” Regarding the production process that is direct and analogue, “I’m basically like a farmer,” he laughs, “it’s physical. I crumble the paper, I feel the paper. When the humidity is different it affects the paper. If it’s drier, it’s harder. If it’s more humid, it’s softer. There are lots of coincidences that I cannot control. That’s the best part.” 

The writer continued to state that the results are abstract but appear like seascapes. “I cannot say if [the work] is concrete or abstract,” Wu adds. “Chinese landscapes never really represent specific mountains. An artist draws their own interpretation of the scene.” Chi-Tsung’s works are growing ever larger: his recent show at Sean Kelly in New York included a triptych of pieces reaching up to 9m high. The works also reflect the artist’s love of rock climbing in Taipei – “facing a giant wall every day and a sea wave just behind me”. Similarly, his aim is to immerse the viewer in the space.

Wu Chi-Tsung’s solo exhibition jing-atmospheres was listed in the Editor’s Pick by Artnet News. Each week, the website search for the most exciting and thought-provoking shows, screenings, and events, both digitally and in-person in the New York area. Here are editor Sarah Cascone’s introduction to the exhibition:

In his first show at Sean Kelly, Wu Chi-Tsung presents his “Cyano-Collage” series, which reinterprets he traditional ink and brush landscapes of Chinese shan shui paintings—which translates to “mountain-water-pictures”—through the lens of experimental photography. The artist crumples up cyanotype paper that has a photosensitive coating, exposes it to sunlight, and mounts it on aluminum to create collaged images that recall mountainous landscapes.

Artnet於11月2日發表的「本週最佳展覽」推薦版塊中,個展《境》亦被評價為最「激動人心、引人深思」的展覽。網站編輯Sarah Cascone的推薦詞如下:
