Artist Talk: Ting-Tong Chang
Saturday 31 March
Ting-Tong Chang’s satirical gaze leaves no aspect of society untouched. Revelling in the absurd and illogical, he makes a mockery of socio-political subjects ranging from the social and ecological effects of consumerism to the functioning of the art world itself. Working across the distinct practices of ink drawing, durational performance and kinetic sculpture, his transgressive practice co-opts science, technology and history to dissect the world around him. Hear Ting-Tong Chang discuss his work P’eng’s Journey to the Southern Darkness as part of contemporary art exhibition Synthetica, in conversation with co-curator Dr Sarah Thomas, Edinburgh International Science Festival.
