施昀佑 | Yunyu “Ayo” Shih


1985年生於台灣彰化,畢業於台灣大學歷史學系(2007),芝加哥藝術學院雕塑創作碩士(MFA, 2014)。從2010年開始創作至今,施昀佑的作品形式一直與其身處的空間密切相關:在台北這個他生活了十年的城市,他能以一棟歷史建築為媒材進行創作(「像建築告別——洞洞館計畫(2010)」),而身處長期的移動狀態時,他的作品也隨之進入行李箱,成為檔案、文件與書冊,講述著一則又一則的故事。在創作中,他經常使用不同的形式探索紀念碑和記憶的樣貌,同時也總是納入他和國家機器以及機構之間的互動,但相對於一種對抗的姿態,施昀佑更傾向於使用一種共存或滲透的手法來探索這中間的模糊地帶。



Yunyu Ayo Shih (b. 1985) currently lives and work in Taipei and New York. He graduated from National Taiwan University with a BA in History in 2007 and School of The Art Institute of Chicago with an MFA in Sculpture in 2014. Since he started to make art in 2010, Shih’s work has always related closely to the space he situated; In Taipei, a city he lived in for ten years, he turn a whole building into the subject of his art in the piece Farewell To A Building, the DDGP (2010). While he is constantly moving and relocating, his works are stored in suitcases and become archives, documents, and books that tells different stories. He frequently explores different appearances of memorial and memory while at the same time involving interactions between himself and state apparatus. Instead of posing a confrontational gesture, he tends to choose coexistent or penetrated attitudes to explore gray areas.

Shih’s work has been exhibited at Power Station Art Museum in Shanghai, Taipei Contemporary Art Center, VT Artsalon (Taiwan), Practice Space (NY), 4-18 Space (Bogota), Long March Space in Beijing(2016), Cultural Center Belgrade(2017) and many other space. He has been the recipient of the New Artist Society Award (2012), Taiwan National Cultural Affair Grant (2015), and The National Culture and Arts Foundation Award (2015), and has participated in the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2014), the Arctic Circle Residency (2015), and 4-18 Residency in Colombia (2015).
