>> Ting-Jung Chen’s audio installation You Are the Only One I Care About (whisper) conveysa vivid impression of a peculiar phenomenon spawned by pro-paganda strategies between thepoles of projection and appropriation: the artist has reimaginedthe enormous “broadcast walls” that both socialist and capitalist countries in East Asia erectedalong their borders to flood their enemy neighbors with slogans and songs from the “better world.” Her sculptural and musical composition prompts wide-ranging reflections on the transformation of modes of the dissemination of ideology specific to a place and time into today’s global commercialized space. <<
