Taiwanese Artist Ting Jung Chen’s “1:1:2” Featured at the Mak Center for Art and Architecture

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Schindler House, Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles and Mak Center for Art and Architecture jointly present 1:1:2 from September 9th to September 11th, 2022. This performance artwork is curated by Taiwanese artist Ting Jung Chen, together with Korean artists Miae Son and Yela An.

1:1:2 unfolds in three parts over three nights, each night featuring a poet/artist: through writing, reading, and digestion. Inviting Los Angeles-based poets and workshop participants, including literary and performance scholars, as well as Professor Mei-Ling Cheng (Taiwan) of the USC School of Theatre Arts, the performance offers texts centered on traditional poetic forms and structures from across Asia. Each poem will be inscribed with the four seasons, an important element of the Asian poetry genre, and transformed into text. Artist-made sugar boards and ink are used as props for literary workshops and performances, and will subsequently be consumed as a nourishing and pleasurable act of practice.
