Newletter 09：SUMMER NEWS: Delfina Foundation, Arte Laguna Prize, Dawn AIR and Bios Monthly interview
On research of Oology.
This summer, I am conducing my second artist residency in this year at the London-based Delfina Foundation. The Delfina Foundation sits in the core area of London and has a renowned history of 15 years. The artist residency is supported by Ministry of Culture, Taiwan and Delfina Foundation’s network of Asia-Pacific patrons. The session of the year is “Collecting as Practice.” My residency is expected to end on September 19, and my current research revolves around “Oology.”
In spring, I had another residency at the Taitung Dawn Artist Village. Located in Duli, the institution is known for organizing the Taiwan-East-Coast Land Arts Festival, and the residency was matched and supported by Bamboo Curtain Studio. Although the second half of the residency was affected by the unexpected escalation of the pandemic in Taiwan, I was able to complete a series of digital works inspired by and based on the mountains and sea of Taitung.
Early this year, I received the special prize of 15th Arte Laguna Prize in Venice with Angle-Fortune (2016-2017). Next year, after the pandemic subsides, I will embark on a journey into the Amazon rainforest in Brazil and conduct a residency at Labverde in Manaus. The program includes a ten-day expedition into the rainforest joined by scientists, artists, environmentalists, etc.
Finally, I would like to share an interview in Chinese with the online journal Bios Monthly, published in March. In the interview, I shared the current progress of my studios in Berlin and Tainan as well as the relationship between collecting and artwork.
Wish you all a good summer.
Best of health,
