Kuo now lives in Taipei. In 2005, Kuo’s work Invade was admitted and exhibited at Taiwan Pavilion of the Venice Biennale on the behalf of Taiwan, making him the youngest artist who ever participated in the Biennale. He was awarded the ‘Taipei Arts Award’ in 2005 and was one of the five nominees for the ‘Visual Arts Award’ of the ‘Taishin Arts Awards’ in 2008. In 2016, Kuo won the ‘Golden Tripod Awards for Publications’ with his children’s book, THE UNIVERSE LOST A BABY TOOTH. In 2017, Kuo founded ‘STUPIN’, an artist studio residency platform. His works have been exhibited at Taipei Biennial, Singapore Biennale, Biennale of Sydney, Seoul International Media Art Biennale, the ZKM in German and many more important art museums. Even today, countries from all over the world are still inviting Kuo to display his works at different exhibitions. With different art media, Kuo continuously creates a unique vocabulary, which is poetic as well as situational, in his works. The core of his creation focuses on the environment, the disappearing sense of belonging in our heart and the drifting mental state. He explores the nature of life and visualizes it at a non-existent state.
