Taking process as a central subject, Chu and Huang will use the gallery for both exhibition and studio, creating an ever-changing workspace in order to consider the visual resonance of an image, place or narrative once it has ceased to exist.

Working daily, Huang will assemble an evolving installation layered with painting, drawing, video, collage, and three-dimensional frames. An extension of …
