About

Chang Yuchen works in an interdisciplinary manner, perceiving embroidery as drawing, weaving as writing, clothing as portable theater, and installation as moving image.

At MAD, Yuchen will expand on her project “Use Value,” in which she produces useful commodities to comment on artists’ labor by working within the common rules of economics: the price of each product is calculated based on the average hourly rate of all day jobs that Yuchen has worked, multiplied by how many hours she spent on the product, in addition to the cost of the raw materials. In the Artist Studios, Yuchen will create a series of facial masks, exploring protection, fear, and the fragility and power of the body in both the public and private realms.
