Chou specializes in the interplay between aesthetics and society. His works emphasize the working process behind visual aesthetics with a focus on producing alternative modes of operation and cogitation within established mechanisms, and generating alternative corresponding benefits through “atypical collaborations” which concurrently disclose the problems of existing facts. His works take various forms, wherein he often plays the role of the ‘intermediary,’ in contrast to what he considers the main ‘body’ of his works—the individuals, enterprises, institutions and organizations—that he negotiates with and for.

Through manipulation of the “working process,” such as transmitting, transferring, or altering factors such as time, object and place, the results of his projects are thus crystallized, culminating in the formation of a mutual dialectic between the input and output.

Chou’s from Geoff Molyneux Series, is a response to work by the Manchester-based painter Geoff Molyneux (b.1951) who Chou met when on residency at Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) in 2013. Chou plays with Molyneux’s abstract geometric painting, including repeating a particular colour used on the canvas as a background. In this display, Molyneux’s original painting is divorced from the time and place in which it was made – and cumulatively Chou proposes how the mechanisms for the display and contextualization of art may be questioned.
