VIVIAN CHIU

Medium: WOOD
Residency: June 1, 2017–
August 31, 2017

Vivian Chiu was born in Los Angeles and emigrated to Hong Kong at the age of three. Her interests in creating objects and the visual arts led her to attend the Rhode Island School of Design, where she graduated with a BFA in furniture design. With an aptitude for problem solving and a sensitivity towards materials, Vivian creates sculptures that attempt to formalize coincidental happenings in repetitive processes. Using the conflicts and commonalities between Eastern and Western culture, Vivian channels her physical energy into labor-intensive methods to not only create visually dynamic work but also to pay conscious homage to her family’s history in factory work.

Vivian has completed residencies with Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Sculpture Space, Haystack Mountain School, and Anderson Ranch Arts Center.  She most recently lived and worked in Brooklyn, NY.

Vivian will be with HCCC from June – August, 2017.  For more information, visit www.vivianchiudesigns.com.
