BIOGRAPHY

Keno Tung (b. 1991, Taipei, Taiwan) is a sound-based video artist, recording engineer, and podcaster who currently lives in New York. Tung obtained her BFA in the motion picture from National Taiwan University of Art in Taipei, Taiwan in 2014 and now is further to attain her MFA degree in Fine Art from School of Visual Art in New York. Tung’s practice explores the limitation in language expression by creating literature conversation in sounds, that comes from unclear situations and dimensions, within one-minute short video.

As a relatively new artist who started doing art late in 2018, Tung has switched her style from typical film-making to the fine arts field. After she finished the second video project ‘’UNDERTONE’’, Tung was invited to show her debut in the Crypt Gallery, London, United Kingdom, 2019. Now, She is working on her third video project ‘’INSTANT CINEMA’’ which is also an interactive art work randomly shown on the streets in New York City. ​

In 2019, Tung also started a podcast show ''Mindfulness Artist.co'' on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify. Tung is the host tackling topics related to the Art and Mindfulness while she also introduces New York Based artists in both the English and Mandarin versions. Tung’s ultimate vision is to bridge common folks who are interested in art to the artists who want to be seen and heard.  ​

 

Before coming to New York, Tung co-founded the IIF Action Art company in Taiwan as the filmmaker and art agent for a Taiwanese artist (ZHANG GUANG BO). For commercials, Tung and her team have done numerous projects for EVA air, Zojirushi, Vans, etc. Tung also made audio advertisements for IKEA, BenQ, HTC, SONY, Mercedes Benz, Lexus, TOYOTA and FORD. 

自傳​

KENO TUNG(b. 1991,台灣台北)是一位目前生活在紐約的聲音與影像藝術家、錄音師和音頻節目主持人。他於2014年取得國立臺灣藝術大學電影學系學士學位,隨後前往紐約在紐約視覺藝術學院繼續攻讀純藝術。他的作品主要透過具有文學性質的日常對話,探討語言表達的困難與限制,利用一分鐘的短影像製造模糊不清的事件與時空交錯的想像空間。

身為一個相對較晚在2018年才開始進行純藝術創作的藝術家,Keno將過去所學的典型影片製作風格轉變為純藝術領域的形式。2019初,在完成第二個聲音影像作品‘’潛下的聲音‘’後,受到邀請在倫敦的Crypt Gallery展出他的處女秀。現在他正在進行第三個聲音影像系列作品,同時也是隨機會出現在紐約街頭的互動型藝術。

2019年,Keno創立他的線上音頻節目正念藝術家製造公司,節目串流在Apple Podcasts、Google PodcastsSpotify等平台。Keno作為節目主持人旣作者,用中英文各自講述與分享主題關於藝術與正念的關係與練習,希望能作為一個溝通藝術與一般人生活的橋樑。

在尚未前往紐約之前,Keno在台灣創辦空境行動藝術有限公司,作為一個影像製作公司以外,也為台灣原木藝術家張光伯做藝術經紀與行銷。在廣告影像中,他與他的團隊製作過長榮航空、象印集團、VANS等品牌的形象廣告。Keno自己身為廣播廣告錄音師,也製作過關於宜家宜室、BenQ、HTC、索尼、賓士、凌志、本田與福特汽車等廣告。
