The Creative Initiative Award has been created by Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop to provide funding and assistance to artists wishing to develop and realise innovative artistic projects. The nature of these projects could be anything but proposals should be ambitious, innovative and have a specific set of outcomes.
Ting-Tong Chang (b. 1982, Taiwan) received his MFA at Goldsmiths, University of London. His installations are marked with brevity and absurd objects, getting to the core of contemporary problems: globalization stimulated by the developments in technology, blurred boundaries between nations, or the omniscient fear of terrorism that we are already accustomed to. Freely and with a wicked dose a black humor (European Performance Festival, 2011), Chang toys with such concepts as death, war, and mass destruction, which have become ingrained in today’s world. Chang lives and works in London and has exhibited internationally including Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Moscow Museum of Modern Art and Warsaw Centre for Contemporary Arts.
