An egg rocks on a fine wire sculpture. Another bounces on a wall-mounted metal sheet. These are the performative sculptures of Taipei-born, London-based artist Liang-Jung Chen, who expands on a background in industrial product design with drawing, installation, object and performance. Interactive bodies of work, such as The Egg Rack Made a Disclaimer, are informed by an interest in the tensions embedded in everyday scenarios, exploring the sense of boundaries and insecurities experienced in modern society. An evolving interplay between the tangible and intangible becomes a study of behaviour and psyche.
