Taiwan-born artist Huang Po-Chih graduated from Taipei National University of the Arts in Taiwan in 2011, and has since participated in various group exhibition include ng “Testimony of Food: Ideas and Food” at Taipei Fine Arts Museum in Taipei, Taiwan, in 2015, and in the Taipei Biennale at Taipei Fine Arts Museum in Taipei, Taiwan and The 8th Shenzhen Sculpture Biennale at OCT Contemporary Art Terminal (OCAT) in Shenzhen, China, in 2014.
Huang Po-Chih’s diverse artistic practice principally explores issues such as agriculture, economics, popular consumption and production, depicting and surveying local history and the evolution of society and the environment. Seeking points of convergence among his many experiences to serve as his text, he reassembles the fragmented historical and cultural contexts of his experiences, and manufactures daily consumer goods (or events) as “counterfeits” that form connections of social communication, with the aim of exploring how these “art (products or events)” can initiate new meanings and deﬁnitions within complex social relationships.
