Jia-Ling Hsu, born and lives in Taipei, is a performance artist, actor, and film director. Hsu earned her BFA degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, focusing on performance and film-making. Embedded with memories and dreams, Hsu’s works are emotional responses to personal experiences regarding family, belief and romance, and explore the relationship between “freedom” and “constraint.” By assembling multiple materials such as body, text, object, sound, lighting and architectural space, Hsu’s works transform the unspeakable into an intimate touch of mind. The narrative is ambiguous and the audience is encouraged to share his/her interpretation in an open discussion that keeps her works nourished. Hsu is the recipient of “Cultural Exchange with Artist in Residence Grants” by Ministry of Culture of Taiwan and had her art residency in Hangar, Barcelona in 2015. Recent works include Scent of Sweetness, Still here, A way for the ambivalence, Washing off, and I want to make a garden, or be one; performing works include Retrospective by French choreographer Xavier Le Roy in Taipei Biennial 2016.

許家玲,生長於臺北市。美國芝加哥藝術學院學士,從事表演藝術與影像創作編、導、演。作品從日常生活經驗出發,採集自身在家庭、信仰、愛情等關係裡,對於「自由」與「束縛」的體驗與想像,並將「夢境」與「回憶」鑲嵌其中;運用身體、空間、文字、物件、聲音、燈光等素材,將內心難以言說的情感,轉化為 感知的語彙,拼貼於時間軸上,敘事破碎而開放。2015 年獲選文化部「選送文 化相關人才出國駐村交流計畫」,進駐西班牙巴塞隆納昂格藝術村。近期作品有《品香》、《我想做一個花園》、《還在》、《糾結成路》、《卸妝》等,並於 2016 臺北雙年展期間參與法國編舞家薩維耶‧勒華作品《回顧》演出。

In Experimental Winter – Contemporary Music Concert, Jia-Ling Hsu directs and performs in one of the world premier compositions Inhale/Exhale: Words Without Language (composer: Antti Myllyoja).
