張紋瑄的藝術實踐透過重讀、重寫及虛構出另類方案,來質問機構化歷史的敘事結構,並同時暴露出潛藏在歷史敘事中,不同權力之間的角力關係,而此暴露結構的手段,也正是一種重新處理個人故事及歷史書寫之間的關係及能動性的方式。藉由不同的媒介——包含裝置、錄像及講述——的使用,他經常用與原件有誤差的檔案以及第一人稱敘事,讓觀者得以反思歷史如何影響了當下的形塑與未來的推進。

The artistic practice of Chang Wen-Hsuan questions the narrative structure of institutionalised history with re-readings, re-writing, and suggestions of fictional alternatives. To expose the power tensions embedded in historical narratives is a way of managing the relationships and dynamics between individual stories and the writing of history. Through versatile platforms including installations, videos, and lectures, she often navigates skewed documentations and first-person accounts to trigger reflections on how the understanding of history affects the purport of the present and thrust of the future.
