Chang Li-Ren was born in Taichung, Taiwan in 1983. In 2011, he graduated from the Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts, Tainan National University of the Arts. He mostly creates video installations, conceptual projects and animation. Chang Li-Ren builds a virtual reality world by means of narrative. French sociologist and philosopher Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) proposed a concept of simulation. Baudrillard argued that our modern society has created simulacra, for example television, computers and other digital technology produce images that are the reflections of a profound reality, but these reflections appear to be more real than the reality itself. This creates hyperreality where the boundaries between imagination and reality are completely disintegrating. In his video art Chang Li-Ren skillfully masters these boundaries and produces a simulation of the real world. Chang’s woks have been on display in Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, Saint Petersburg, Paris and other places. In 2013, he received Young Art Taipei Award, in 2008 was selected for The 8th Taishin Arts Award, and in 2009 received Kaohsiung Awards, Taipei Arts Award and Taoyuan Creation Award.
