Jazz Szu-Ying Chen

  • Born in 1990, Based in Taipei, Taiwan

Jazz Szu-Ying Chen (b. 1990) is a Taiwanese artist residing in Taipei after a 10 year stint in EU/UK, and is currently one of the artists-in-residence at New Taipei City’s Banqiao 435 Art District. After graduating London’s Central Saint Martin’s with a Masters in Art & Science in 2015, Jazz has been consistently exhibiting in both Taiwan and abroad, with her commission for London’s Chelsea & Westminster Hospital A&E Wing permanently on show since 2015. Her most recent solo show was in December 2021, at Taipei’s Yiyun Gallery. She also regularly collaborates with the music scene, most notably with Houndstooth, London’s Fabric Club’s in-house record label, on their 2018 critically-acclaimed compilation “In Death’s Dream Kingdom.”

Jazz’s subjects of focus span over her interest in the beauty and grotesque within the field of anatomy/medical historical imageries, to mythologies and folklore such as Nordic mythology and “Classics of Mountains and Seas.” She manipulates the dissected anatomical imageries and creates tableaus with mythological monsters and botanical details. The tableaus are meant to tell stories regarding the cultural clashes, her views on superstition, reflections from her Taiwanese roots, and the many facets of love.
