    Set in Stone:
    Zen Garden Installation by Long-Bin Chen

    Directed by Dave Brown
    Original Soundtrack: Nathan Koci
    Producer: Karen Ann Myers

    The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art commissioned Rebound artist, Long-Bin Chen, to create a site-specific sculptural work concurrent with the exhibition Rebound: Dissections and Excavations in Book Art. Chen created the work during a residency (May 1 – 23, 2013), using books from the Charleston community. College of Charleston students Tommy Fox and Jordan Fowler, and sculpture studio technician Michael Morrison were Chen’s studio assistants during the residency.

    Long-Bin Chen explores different cultural meanings, and seeks to combine ideas and concepts from the East with those of the West. He works with local printed material from the communities in which he is an artist-in-residence, including telephone books, magazines, and other cultural remnants of our information society. At first glance, the sculptures appear to be stonework, and most viewers are surprised to learn that Chen’s sculptures are soft and made from paper.

    Born: Taipei, Taiwan. Lives/works: Bronx, New York

    Long-Bin Chen received a MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York, and a BFA from Tung-Hai University, Taiwan. He was the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation Award in 1996, and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in both 1997 and 1998. He has exhibited widely in the United States, Germany, Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong. Recent solo exhibitions include Continental Express, Frederieke Taylor Gallery, New York; Burning Book, 798 Gallery, Beijing, China; icon & idea, Plum Blossom Gallery, Hong Kong; and Long-Bin Chen Book Art, Nou Gallery, Taipei, Taiwan.
