Lives and works in Oslo
Jacky Jaan-Yuan Kuo's artistic practice is kindled by the architectural concept of domestic voyeurism. His works unite installation, text, sculpture and collaboration as a mixed metaphor for the uncanniness of intimacy. Through transforming the ordinary into sensual objects and utilising snippets of memory, Kuo alternates, on the one hand, the private and personal and, on the other, the public, collectivist cultures that reject individualism. He received an MFA from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in 2021 and a BFA from Fu Jen Catholic University in 2017. His recent works have been included in exhibitions at Oslo Kunstforening (Oslo, 2022), Aki Gallery (Taipei, 2022), Tenthaus (Oslo, 2022), Podium (Oslo, 2021) and Northing Space (Bergen, 2021). Since 2021, Kuo has been a member of Tenthaus, where he utilises open-ended publishing and workshop-documenting to further engage in collaborative practice.
