Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to update everyone about the proposals that I am receiving now by e mail from artists all over the world who want to create an environmental art installation at Cheng Long Wetlands.  I have received entries already from 15 artists even though the deadline is still several weeks away.  Remember to get your proposal materials to me before the deadline of February 12.  My email address for receiving your files is allenrebeccajanei@gmail.com

I have also answered lots of e mail requests from artists for more information about the project.  One of the most frequent questions is about the artist providing a connection to a school in his community.  For this part of the project, we want the artist to provide a connection to a school or an environmental youth organization that would want to partner with the Cheng Long Elementary School to continue some international exchange between the students.   The exchange would be by e mail and hopefully develop some international dialogue and continuing exchange between the students about environmental issues and art focused on the envirnoment.

I will also be happy to answer any other questions about the exhibition from interested artists. You can leave comments here on the Blog or you can contact me directly by e mail at this address:  allenrebeccajanei@gmail. com

I have been living in Taiwan for over 5 years since coming here from America as a Fulbright Scholar artist in residence.  My husband Tim and I decided to stay in Taiwan because we enjoy the culture and especially the people.  I continue to do art projects all over Taiwan and in other countries.  I was the curator for the past 4 years for the Guandu International Outdoor Sculpture Festival in Taipei and this year for an international exhibition of art about the marine environment at the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium in Pingtung County, Taiwan.  I am posting an image from the 2009 Guandu International Outdoor Sculpture Festival by American artist Roy Staab.

This work is by American artist Roy Staab, titled "Energy Center" at the 2009 Guandu International Outdoor Sculpture Festival in Taipei, Taiwan that I curated.

I am also posting an image from the “Turning the Tide” exhibition in December 2009 at the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium.  This photo shows the work “Fish Trap” by French artist Thierry Godet.

I think the Cheng Long Wetlands Environmental Art Project will be quite different and an exciting opportunity for me as a curator. I visited Cheng Long Wetlands last November to plan for this exhibition “Children and Artists Celebrate the Wetland” and I am excited to be working in this interesting and unique community.  It is very small and very rural and will give international artists a unique and intimate look at Taiwan that is very different from what tourists usually see who visit only Taipei and the other big cities in Taiwan.

I will keep you updated as I receive more applications and questions from interested artists.

Jane 在上面提到:雖然距離收件截止日還有數個星期,但到目前為止,已有來自世界各地十五位藝術家透過電子郵件提交他們想在成龍溼地進行的藝術裝置了。請各位有意參與徵選的藝術家們,別忘了將投稿所需文件,在2月12日前寄給Jane(allenrebeccajanei@gmail.com)

也有許多人透過email向Jane詢問這個計畫,最常見的問題是介紹自己社區裡的一所伙伴學校。關於這個部份,我們是希望藝術家能帶來一所願意和成龍國小交流的學校或青年環保組織,這個交流可以是透過電子郵件,也希望未來能發展出一些國際對話,讓學生們能持續關注環境議題和環境藝術。

大家有任何問題都可以儘量提出來,不論是透過個部落格或是透過電子郵件。

Jane已經從美國來到台灣五年了,當時她是以傅爾布萊特獎助藝術家的身份來台,後來就和先生Tim決定住在台灣,因為她和先生都很喜歡這裡的文化,特別是人。Jane住在台灣後仍持續進行許多藝術計畫,有的在台灣、有的在其他國家。在過去的四年,她為台北闗渡自然公園策劃國際藝術節,最近則有一個展”潮向未來”是在屏東海生館。大家可以參考Jane所提供的二張照片。第一張照片是2009年一位美國藝術家Roy Staab在關渡自然公園的裝置藝術作品。第二張則是法國藝術家Thierry Godet在海生館的作品「魚籠」。

但是Jane認為在成龍溼地進行的這項環境藝術計畫會很不一樣,這對她身為一個策展人來說,是一個很令人期待的機會。她去年十一月時到過成龍溼地為”兒童與藝術家的禮讚”作準備,她覺得這是一個很有意思且獨特的社區。它非常的小、非常的偏遠,和台灣其他大家眾所皆知的台北及其他大都市很不一樣,相信這可以提供國際藝術家們一個非常獨特的經驗。

Jane 說,在她接到更多來信及提問後,會再和大家分享。
