獲選藝術家公告>>2018 Artists Selected!

We are happy to announce the international artists selected to come to Cheng Long in 2018 to create new artworks during a 25-day residency from April 12 to May 7 and also to attend the 9th anniversary reunion and symposium about “Environmental Art and Communities” to be held May 11 – 14. The theme for 2018 is “What a Difference 9 Years Makes”, and we invited proposals from all artists who have participated as selected artists in the years since the project began in 2010. 26 artists sent in proposals, and it was very difficult to choose only 6 from so many good proposals.
我們很高興在此宣佈〈2018成龍溼地國際環境藝術節〉藝術家獲選名單!!這些藝術家將於2018年4月12日~5月7日,利用25天的駐村時間,完成一件新的藝術作品;他們並且將留下來參與5月11日~5月14日所舉辦大團圓及環境藝術論壇。〈2018成龍溼地國際環境藝術節〉的主題是 「作伙倒轉來!」,我們邀請了從2010年至今的獲選藝術家再一次來參與提案,與我們共同回顧九年來的改變。要從26件優秀的提案裡僅僅決選出6位,真是件不容易的事呀!

The 6 artists selected for 2018 are:

Firman Djamil來自印尼,他是2011年的成龍溼地藝術家,這次他將要進行的現地創作名為「浪花」(暫譯);這九道從溼地裡捲起的浪花,將為我們帶來不同以往的視野及觀點。

Proposal 2 2Myriam du Manoir of France who came to Cheng Long for the first year of the art project in 2010 will make a large outdoor sculpture installation for 2018 called “Wings” that will be created with a bamboo framework and parts woven with reeds and recycled clothing. The wings artwork will bring attention to the many birds now making their homes in the Cheng Long Wetlands.
Myriam du Manoir來自法國,她是成龍溼地藝術計畫第一屆的藝術家。2018年,她將要在成龍溼地進行的大型戶外創作名為「羽翼」;以竹子作出框架結構,再以蘆葦和回收布料編織物作局部覆蓋。這件作品想要告訴大家,這九年來,溼地成為越來越多候鳥的家。

He will use bamboo and oyster shells to construct this artwork in the shallow water of the wetlands.
