Chuan Lun Wu

Chuan Lun Wu was born in Tainan, Taiwan, and currently lives and works between Berlin and Tainan. In his multidisciplinary practice, he creates installations exploring the relations between nature and civilisation, ecology and politics, the material and the digital realm. For the exhibition, the artist presents three drawings from the series An Eggy Video Meeting (2022). The series is based on the artist’s research residency at Delfina Foundation in London around the 18th-century British hobby of collecting eggs and nests for ornithology and ornamental purposes. The ironic artworks depict birds in online meetings showing a variety of private spaces drawing a parallel to the way humans use these platforms from their homes. The humorous naming of each egg draws attention to the violent practice of categorisations and classifications in traditional museum studies and ornithology.
