Biography



Kai-Chun Chang is a Taiwanese artist based in Paris. His works span different media such as painting, collage and photography. His creation focusses primarily on the representation of light and space, and their subtle pictural relationship. 


In his paintings, with repeated crossovers formed by slow and gentle gestures, the diluted paint accumulates and embodies the different spectra of light.


 Working on the notion of screen, primary and refined forms appear in his works as pictorial spaces, whether they are epidermal and deep or floating and luminous. These forms are places that invoke fragments of memory and pure sensations. They appear as quiet interior landscapes who invite for contemplation.

TK / 1962
From The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

            Yet one standard product of the scientific enterprise is missing. Normal science does not aim at novelties of fact or theory and, when successful, finds none. New and unsuspected phenomena are, however, repeatedly uncovered by scientific research, and radical new theories have again and again been invented by scientists.
            The practice of normal science depends on the ability, acquired from exemplars, to group objects and situations into similarity sets which are primitive in the sense that the grouping is done without an answer to the question, “Similar with respect to what?” One central aspect of any revolution is, then, that some of the similarity relations change. Objects that were grouped in the same set before are grouped in different ones afterward and vice versa. Think of the sun, moon, Mars, and earth before and after Copernicus; of free fall, pendular, and planetary motion before and after Galileo; or of salts, alloys, and a sulpuhur-iron filing mix before and after Dalton.
