2020 NTT-TIFA SU Wen-chi ╳ YiLab. WAVE ∞
As a response to the devastating tsunami that hit Japan in 2011, SU Wen-chi’s W.A.V.E. from 2011 to 2014 explores the visible and invisible waves in the city and provokes thoughts on the relationship between nature and human, the actual and the virtual, and the memory inscribed in time vis-à-vis sensorial experience
WAVE∞ in 2020 deploys kinetic installations to symbolize human imagination incited by contemplating the stars, while the universe and human existence expressed through body movements testify to the vastness of the world and our own smallness. Looking up at the galaxy stretched from the center of the city, we thereby share the moment to echo the infinite sparkles with the most visceral physicality and emotions.
Concept development and choreography, SU Wen-chi
SU Wen-chi, the founder of YiLab, is known for her interdisciplinary works combining new media and performing arts to explore the potentiality and challenge of contemporary arts in a world dominated by digital technology. She is actively involved in the dialogue and collaboration with artists and scientists around the world, including Mapping Festival of Geneva and the dance and technology project launched by the Yamaguchi Centre for Arts and Media, Japan. Her Heroine won the Jury’s Special Prize of the 9th Taishin Arts Award, and W. A. V. E. is the winner of the Gold Award of Alternative Design at World Stage Design 2017.
Founded in 2005 by SU Wen-chi, YiLab. experiments with dance, installation and new media with a belief that “a work is not about one dominant medium, but concepts that appear similar and yet collide with one another; while every artist involved is an independent entity who can freely put forward their viewpoint and undertake in-depth exploration of the core significance of the theme.”
YiLab. appears frequently on significant international scenes: Asian Arts Theatre (Gwangju, South Korea), Arcadi (Paris), SCOPITONE 2017 (Nantes), Kunsten Festival Arts (Bruxelles), The STUK Arts Center (Leuven) , LEAP gallery (Berlin), Potsdamer Tanztage, InShadow (Lisbon), Kalamata International Dance Festival (Kalamata, Greece), Mapping Festival and LaBâtie (Geneva).
