Through his art, Yu-Cheng Chou crafts a subtle critique of the mass media, and of the institutions and mechanisms that produce it. Interrogating the processes by which aesthetic, symbolic, social and economic values are built in the art world, his pieces lift the lid on artwork and exhibition production modes. Often based on collaborations with industrial companies, his installations, paintings and performances take a grating look at consumer society and the monetisation of human relations.
