About

“Chia’s artistic identity is one that defies the artificial borders and boundaries of the modern nation state.  Going beyond the notion of the individual simply as a constituent of a nation and its projected cultural identity, (s)he bypasses the need for mass appeal or approval and instead subscribes to the independent nature that characterises folk – the resistance to a canon.”June Yap, The WIRE

/// ENG

Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation makes work which some consider art, some consider music and some consider trash. But clearly, it never quite fits into contemporary categories. She is trans, nomadic and is exploring the intersections of gender, noise and ritual through performance and the collective trance.

She splits his time between asia<>europe where she directs the International //gender|o|noise\\ Underground and organizes the trans*queer themed Translæctica events.  Currently she is working on a video-art piece based on ephemeral public interventions she does with other trans* women in south-east asia.

Tara performs solo as One Man Nation, with Truna as { 23 Shadows of Amnesia } and with Pierre Bastien as Mecanation.  She has collaborated extensively and her past collaborations include Bambu Wukir, Hilary Jeffrey, Iman Jimbot, Richard Scott and Sara Mikolai; has performed internationally at Club Transmediale (Berlin), donaufestival (Krems), Gaite Lyrique (Paris), Guggenheim Museum (Bilbao), ISEA (Ruhr), Museum of Contemporary Art (Taipei), Sonic Protest (Paris) and Steirischer Herbst (Graz) amongst many others.

Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation es una música experimental con experiencia en producción media y arte sonoro. Ella es trans, una nómada y actualmente se dedica a enviar señales de humo desde el International //gender|o|noise\\ Underground, desde donde explora los temas de género, el ruido y la catarsis mediante sus actuaciones, charlas y la experiencia colectiva de crear efímeras colaboraciones con otras comunidades trans*queer en todo el mundo.  Aunque nació en Singapur, ahora divide su tiempo entre Asia|España, lugares en los que sigue desarrollando sus diferentes proyectos, como The Future Sounds of Folk, la codirección de El Campo Unificado y el ciclo de noches Translæctica.

Tara es conocida en solitario como One Man Nation, pero también trabaja en dúo con Truna para el proyecto { 23 Sombras de Amnesia }, así como también participa en Mecanation, con Pierre Bastien. Además ha colaborado con muchos otros artistas que incluyen a  Bambu Wukir, Hilary Jeffrey, Iman Jimbot, Richard Scott and Sara Mikolai; sus performances tienen presencia internacional y ha actuado en el Club Transmediale (Berlin), donaufestival (Krems), Gaite Lyrique (Paris), Guggenheim Museum (Bilbao), ISEA (Ruhr), Museum of Contemporary Art (Taipei), Sonic Protest (Paris) and Steirischer Herbst (Graz) entre muchos otros.
