We are happy to announce the 6 artists selected for the 2013 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project:
Giorgio Tessadri from Italy, now living in Belgium (出生於義大利,現居比利時)
Johan Sietzema from the Netherlands (荷蘭)
Kuo-Chun Chiu 邱國峻 from Taiwan (台灣)
Michael Rofka from Germany (德國)
Michele Brody from the USA (美國)
Ya-chu Kang 康雅筑 from Taiwan (台灣)
These six artists will come to live and work in Cheng Long village, Kouhu Township, Yunlin County, Taiwan, from April 11 to May 6, 2013, to create their proposed site-specific sculpture installations in Cheng Long Wetlands. These artists will be working with children and adults in the community during a 25-day residency to create their environmental artworks that will offer different interpretations of the theme for 2013– “On the Table: Aquaculture and the Environment.”
The photos below show the sketches of the works proposed by each of the 6 selected artists:
Congratulations to all of the 2013 artists, and we look forward to welcoming them to Cheng Long Village! There is much to plan and discuss over the coming months as we all get ready for the 2013 Cheng Long art project.
Thank you to all the artists who were invited to make proposals for 2013. All of the proposals were wonderful, and we had so many great artists with good ideas that the decision was very difficult. Some of the finalists may be invited later to Cheng Long for a special project at the end of 2013. We really appreciate the time and effort that all of the artists put into making their proposals, and thank them very much for their interest in this art project. We hope that we can consider some of these artists again for future art projects in Taiwan.
也感謝所有受邀參與2013提案的藝術家. 我們這次真的得到許多很棒的藝術家和很好的點子,要我們在這些很棒的提案中作選擇,真的是很困難. 因此有些藝術家我們正在詢問其今年度其他時間或特別活動合作的機會.再次由衷地感謝所有受邀藝術家花費了時間和心力完成了提案,也非常感謝大家對這個藝術計畫感到興趣.我們希望下次能再有機會,邀請到這些藝術家來台灣進行創作!
