Winner of Under-30 Program

A quality of nature that fascinates us – it is governed by certain rules we’re barely aware of – give off mysterious, diverse, unrepeatable and somewhat sacred presences. Is it possible to deliberately reproduce ‘naturalness’ in artifacts?

Selected as UNDER-30 at Designart 2019, Chialing Chang is an artist based between Taipei, Tokyo, and Lausanne. Collections of her subtle yet strong works will be unveiled in Japan for the very first time, along with abundant books recommended by Bunkitsu under the theme of nature.


獲日本最大級設計藝術盛會 DESIGNART TOKYO 2019 UNDER-30計畫選出,台灣設計師張家翎在日本首度個展,並於開展當晚舉辦分享座談,深入其創作所探尋之自然脈絡。

令人著迷的自然本質,那一些我們未曾真正意識的規律或法則,散發出神秘、捉模不定、不可重複且甚至有些聖性的存在;然而,是否能夠擁有「精心製造的自然」?以自然為隱喻,並非對於既存型態的模仿,也非材料形式上的並置,而是通過抽象轉換,使自然的脆弱性與人工的精確維度,在對比映照之中顯現,而沒有任何一個要素掩蓋彼此。

展覽中將露出大型新作 Floating Pattern (2019)、由古老樹皮布工藝 Scallopig Series (2016)、樹皮軟化與平整化提案 Wood Not Wood (2016)、追溯木業製材廠製程廢材的 Second Nature (2016),四件作品以相異尺度與材質特性,相互譜出自然之姿。所有作品皆於現場進行展售。
