About


Cheng Daoyuan is a multimedia artist devoted to the examination of the concomitance and rivalry between the self and the nature of existence through experimental sound, image, and installation works. This examination has been at the core of Cheng’s art practice, which involves a philosophical exercise that he describes by saying “completeness is nothingness, and the end is the beginning.”

Cheng has been active in Taiwan's experimental sound scene since 2015. In 2019, he performed in Tokyo (Japan) and released his debut physical album. His sound works have been released on various labels and platforms in the form of compilations, remixes, collaboration and programs. In 2020, he was invited to perform at MUTEK: Nexus Experience. In recent years, he focused on the development of multi-channel sound works, which have been presented in National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts and Taiwan Contemporary Culture Lab.

In 2022, he was selected as the resident of the Sound-Off Project in Taiwan Sound Lab, C-LAB, presented the 49.4-channel multimedia work DOOME: Null Gods. In the same year, he participated in the Taiwan Biennial with a new installation work Where End Is Silent.

His co-created work Re-Fracture was nominated for the 22nd Taishin Arts Award in 2023.

多媒體藝術創作者,他從實驗聲響、影像及裝置等不同媒材探尋自我狀態與存在本質的相對與共存,將一體兩面作為核心概念貫穿於作品中,試圖呈現「全即無,終為始」的哲學意象。
