陳慧嶠生於台灣淡水(1964~),是台北「伊通公園」的創辦人之一,也是目前台灣少數活躍於國際間知名的女性藝術家之一。陳慧嶠自1987年開始嘗試空間裝置,於1993年發表《你是玫瑰我是針》的裝置作品後,即獲得台灣藝術圈的注意,1997年的《在我之中在我之外在空間的空間裡》以及1998年《睡吧!我的愛…》等裝置作品更使她得到各界的肯定,2006年台北當代藝術館的個展「此時此刻」,更奠定了她在台灣當代藝術中不可動搖的地位。

 

Hui-Chiao Chen was born in Tamsui, Taiwan, in 1964 and was one of the founders of IT Park Gallery in Taipei. She is also one of only a handful of female artists from Taiwan currently active on the international art scene. In 1987, Chen first experimented with spatial installations and following her work You’re the Rose, I’m the Needle (1993) started to attract the attention of the local art community. After the pieces Within Me, Without Me in Space, Within Space (1997) and Then Sleep, My Love (1998) Chen’s renown grew and the solo exhibition “Here and Now” at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, in 2006, confirmed her status as a star in the firmament of contemporary Taiwanese art.
