號外 >> Curator Jane will create an artwork in Cheng Long this year!

Curator Jane Ingram Allen will create an artwork in Cheng Long this year!
策展人Jane今年也將為成龍村創作一件作品喔!

As all of you know, Jane has been the Curator for the Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project since it began in 2010, and she comes to the village each year during the 25 days of the art project to supervise the selected international artists.  Usually Jane has no chance to make her own artwork during the art project.   Most of you know that Jane is also an artist as well as a curator, and that she first came to Taiwan in 2004 as a Fulbright Scholar artist in residence to do her artwork with handmade paper from plants of Taiwan.    This photo shows Jane in 2004 with one of her “Taiwan Site Maps” that focused on the many flowers of Taiwan.
如大家所知,Jane從2010年起就是成龍溼地國際環境藝術計畫的策展人,她每年在藝術計畫期間都會進駐成龍村25天,指導藝術家們的工作。通常Jane都不太有時間進行自己的創作,但大部份的你們或許都知道Jane其實是個策展人,也是個藝術家,她第一次到台灣是在2004年,以傅爾博萊特獎助藝術家的身份,來台利用台灣的植物進行手工紙的創作。下面照片是Jane在2004年和她其中一幅「台灣區域地圖」創作的合影,這一系列的作品,主要在展現台灣繽紛的花草。

This year, Jane will have some time to work as an artist as well as working as the curator.  During the 2015 art project Jane plans to create a “Cheng Long Site Map”, and she will make handmade paper from local plant waste materials and use other materials collected in Cheng Long to create a large-scale suspended two-sided artwork that can be moved around to different sites in the village.  Jane will involve the local community in the papermaking process and have an open studio so that people of all ages can join in the papermaking.  Jane’s Cheng Long Site Map as well as the community handmade paper artworks will be displayed in Cheng Long Village at a selected site and remain on view in Cheng Long.
今年,Jane在策展之餘,將會有比較多的時間來從事藝術創作。Jane打算在2015藝術計畫的同時,為成龍村創作一幅「成龍區域地圖」,她將利用成龍在地的植物和附近可以尋得的回收材料來製作一幅大尺寸且可雙面觀賞的地圖作品,未來也可以移動到村子的各處展出。Jane將會需要在地的大人小孩一起來幫忙造紙的過程,也會有個開放的工作室空間,歡迎各位一起加入造紙的行列。Jane 和大家一起創作出來的地圖和手工紙作品,將會在村內一處廢棄的老房子裡展出,以後大家到成龍來,都可以看到這件作品。

Here are some photos of Jane’s previous “site maps” artworks created in different residencies around the world using handmade paper she created from the local plants.
這裡還有一些從前Jane在世界各地所創作的「區域地圖」,都是用當地植物來作為手工紙的材料。

Everyone is invited to come out to visit with Jane and join in the papermaking process for the Cheng Long Site Map. We will post soon where Jane’s studio will be in Cheng Long and what times Jane will be there for the Open Studio public participation.
歡迎大家在藝術家進駐期間(4/9-5/4)來成龍走走,拜訪Jane,並加入製作「成龍區域地圖」的行列。我們之後將會告訴大家Jane工作室的位置,以及和Jane一起工作的時間表。敬請期待!
