Grass with Earth
Wang, Chih-Chien

Born in Taiwan, Chih-Chien Wang has been living in Montreal since 2002. He obtained a BFA in theatre and cinema from the Chinese Culture University in Taipei in 1994, and worked for several television companies producing documentaries before moving to Canada. Wang obtained an MFA in studio arts at Concordia University in 2006. Dealing primarily with his everyday experience, his work frequently contains subtle traces that might refer to cultural or social concerns. He uses photography and video to examine the texture of existence and also to express his concerns about urban environment and cultural differences.

Wang has participated in residency programs at PRIM (Montreal, 2005), El Basilisco (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2007) and Sagamie (Alma, 2008). Since 2004, Wang’s work has been seen in exhibitions held in Beijing, Boston, Lausanne, Miami, Milan, Montreal, New York City, Peterborough, Ping Yao and Toronto. Recent solo and group exhibitions include Optica, Artefact, Dare-Dare (Mois de la photo à Montréal 2007), Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery (Montreal, 2008), Zenith Gallery (Beijing, 2008), the Quebec Triennial 2008 at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain (Montreal, 2008 and 2009), Gallery 44 (Toronto 2009) and Galerie Les Territoires (Montréal 2009).

Chih-Chien Wang is represented by Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain in Montreal and the Zenith Gallery in Beijing.
