For the fourth edition of Tique Salon we are inviting bookpublisher Publication Studio and artist Hou Chien Cheng, who’s exhibition ‘Orchestrating the Borrowed’ is currently running at Tique | art space.
Publication Studio prints and binds books one at a time on-demand, creating original work with artists and writers they admire. Publication Studio uses any means possible to help writers and artists reach a public: physical books; a digital commons (where anyone can read and annotate our books for free); eBooks; and unique social events with our writers and artists in many cities.
Publication Studio is a laboratory for publication in its fullest sense—not just the production of books, but the production of a public. This public, which is more than a market, is created through physical production, digital circulation, and social gathering. Together these construct a space of conversation which beckons a public into being.
Hou Chien Cheng presents his new novel GREEN and will talk about his artistic and literary practice.
GREEN is a doing-it-and-writing-it type of autobiography in which Hou Chien Cheng authorizes himself to take up a notional journey to become transgendered as the protagonist Albert Green. The experience of being transgendered is alien to the artist.
By allowing himself into this world, Hou Chien Cheng experiences a life of which he’d never dreamt, and in which he’d never lived. GREEN forms the current results of Hou Chien Cheng’s research; a characterization of the effects of borrowing unknown experiences.
All presentations will be in English. Tique Salon #4 will take place on Wednesday 4 May and starts at 20 hrs.
