Orchestrating the Borrowed, 2016
Solo exhibition at Tique art space, Antwerp, Belgium

The novel GREEN, among the video and other objects in Hou Chien Cheng's installation, forms the core of Orchestrating the Borrowed, his solo exhibition project at Tique art space in Antwerp.

GREEN is a doing-it-and-writing-it type of autobiography in which Hou authorises himself to take up a notional journey to become transgendered as the protagonist Albert Green. The experience of being transgendered is alien to the artist.

By allowing himself into this world, Hou experiences a life of which he'd never dreamt, and in which he'd never lived. GREEN forms the current results of Hou's research; a characterisation of the effects of borrowing foreign identities.
