intro

For over a decade Chen Yujun has created works that explore the clashes between the inner self and external influences. Best known for his Temporary Family series, started in 2010, Chen seeks to examine the fragmented and shifting identities of individuals in contemporary Asia as a result of globalization and its increasing cultural position. Growing up in Putian, in the southern Fujian province, Chen Yujun was captivated by the issue of shifting identity his grandparents’ generation experienced as they relocated to Nanyang (a general reference to the regions throughout Southeast Asia) to achieve better lives. Often caught up in conflicts between indigenous culture and local traditions, migrants like Chen Yujun’s grandparents were constantly adjusting to seemingly new environments. Returning to their hometown much later in life and having to conform to newly established identities in a Putian, which had also transformed, came with its own set of challenges. Such experiences are all too familiar to Chen Yujun’s generation who were exposed to various cultures and new concepts since the ‘Open Door Policy’ was initiated in 1978. For Chen, the negotiation between the internal or established system versus the accelerated changing reality became a challenging and common condition for individuals, regions, and countries throughout contemporary Asia. In Chen’s work he seeks to recognize and examine these struggles, establishing a kind of internal order as he creates each new piece of work.

简介

在过去的十几年中,陈彧君的创作致力于展现内在自我与外部影响之间的冲突。他试图检视当代亚洲国家中的个体在全球化和其日益形成的文化立场的影响下所面对的支离破碎并且一直变化的身份问题,其最为广为人知的作品是始于2010年 的《临时家庭》系列。成长于福建莆田的陈彧君对他的祖父辈所经历的身份转换的问题很感兴趣。那一代人为改善生存状况而移居南洋,当地文化和自身的传统习俗 间的冲突令他们不断的改变自己以适应各个看似全新的环境;而他们在晚年带着自己新建立的身份回归已物是人非的家乡时,又要再次面对两者在相互适应的过程中 的种种议题。这种体验对于陈彧君的同代人来说更为熟悉,由于1978年开始的“改革开放”令他们更早的接触到了多种文化和新的概念。他认为对于当代亚洲的个体、地区以及国家来说,内在或者原先存在的系统和日益变化的现实之间的相互协商已经成为一种挑战和常态。他试图理解和审视其中所产生的挣扎,并在创作每件新作品的过程中建立内部秩序。
