APPLICATIONS ARE IN!

APPLICATIONS ARE IN!  DECISION ABOUT 2015 SELECTED ARTISTS COMING SOON!
感謝提案,敬請期待2015獲選藝術家……

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have received 137 total entries for the 2015 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project with the theme of “Fragile – Handle With Care”.
(真抱歉,策展人的這篇部落格草稿,被淹沒在她寄出的成堆信件裡, 現在才被撈出來…)  2015年成龍溼地國際環境藝術計畫<易碎品,小心守護!>總計收到137件提案。

There were entries from artists from 49 different countries, and they are from all continents (except Antarctica).   The USA had the most applications with 17 artists coming from different parts of the US.  India was next with applications from 14 artists, and France and Germany each had 10 artists to apply.  Taiwan had 11 artists to apply.
這些提案共來自49個國家,分佈於各大洲(除了南極洲)。美國的提案人數最多,總共有17位,分別來自美國各地。印度次之,共有14位藝術家;法國和德國則各有10位。台灣則有11位藝術家來提案。

I will be reviewing all of the applications carefully to select the artists for 2015.  As you can imagine this takes quite a while.  I am also asking some artists questions about their proposals and looking at the Internet and talking to other artists and curators to learn more about the artists I am considering.
策展人將會仔細檢視所有的申請文件,你應該不難想見這需要花費一些時間。策展人將會針對一些藝術家的提案作進一步的提問、在網路上蒐集資料,和其他藝術家或策展人聊聊,以幫助了解某些評估中的藝術家。

I want to be sure that the artists selected will be a good fit for the Cheng Long project, and that the artworks for 2015 will be exciting and interesting and really get the whole community involved.  There are many things to consider including the experience of the artist, their interest in working with kids and community people, what culture they represent, what they want to create in Cheng Long and how their artwork relates to the theme and the environment, and the quality and skills they show in their previous works.
策展人希望能為成龍溼地國際環境藝術計畫找到最合適的藝術家,而且他們的作品是令人期待的、有趣的、能帶動全村參與的。許多事情都必需被考量在內,包括藝術家的經驗、是否喜愛和小孩及社區一起工作、來自什麼樣的文化背景、想要在成龍村創作什麼、作品和今年主題及環境的關連,以及他們在過去作品中所呈現出的品質與技能。

So, everyone please be patient for a few weeks, and I hope to announce the decision about the 2015 artists by Feb. 15.  Keep looking at this Blog for updates on the process of selecting the artists for 2015.
所以,請大家靜待數周,我們將會在2015年2月15日公告獲選藝術家。敬請大家鎖定部落格關注藝術家決選的最新發展。
