Interview: Chia-Yi Huang

 

Luca Curci talks with the artist Chia-Yi Huang during FUTURE LANDSCAPES of BORDERS festival in Venice on October 2016.

Chia-Yi Huang’s work reflects her interests in traditional art, new media, and restless exploration of architectural form. Based in Brooklyn, she has produced acrylic paintings, line drawings, digital renderings and animations, worked with performance groups, and exhibited internationally, when her first group show was presented at the MORPHOS – Sustainable Empires in Venice. As a participant in New York architecture community, she focuses on bringing the potential to spaces and re-interpreting the interior relationships and adjacencies to a future landscape.

Luca Curci – Please tell me about your art/the artwork shown during our event?
Chia-Yi Huang – My artwork is about how parametric design shapes future landscapes. In this community housing project, I designed a computer-aided process, quantifying environmental factors as the input parameters, generating form, which is then translated into human-scale space. Architecture becomes the aesthetic output of the process, inheriting and expressing the link between human and the environment.

 

L. C. – What about your artistic research?
C. Y. H. – I use a variety of media to explore the relationship between space and urban conditions. Iím interested in experimenting the possibilities of digital programs and performance in a speculative way and exquisitely blending these ideas with hand drawings and paintings, and then systematically recreating the architecture concerned with a future initiative.

L. C. – What’s the art tip you usually receive? Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
C. Y. H. – People want me to draw more and produce more. I totally agree and would like to devote myself further in the art creation so as to resonate my faith powerfully into the architectural design.

 

L. C. – Are you satisfied of this experience?
C. Y. H. – It’s a great opportunity to share my artwork, to think about the connection between art and landscape more deeply, to see and to be seen in such a historical venue and a beautiful city. I truly appreciate it.

L. C. – What is your artist direction? Are you interested in new media and new practices?
C. Y. H. – I like new media and new practices, and my artist direction is to engage them into architectural and social topics. In a choreography project I intended to extend the confrontation of bodies and buildings into design for aging. And in the rendering project for Staten Island Zoo Aquarium I recreated a vivid interior to induce insight understanding and discussion about cultural space.

L. C. – What is your idea about It’s Liquid Group? 
C. Y. H. – It’s Liquid Group provides an integrated platform for artists to express and exchange their ideas. Itís insight reports and articles connect readers to the most updated art and architecture world.

 

L. C. – What do you think about the curatorial project?
C. Y. H. – The curatorial project setup an unique and advanced topic about human and environment. It covers diversified media, conceptually and visually enriching the whole exhibition, delivering beautiful and remarkable landscape experiences.
