Jane and her husband Tim will return to Cheng Long village in Taiwan this year from April 11 to May 14 for the 9th Anniversary of the international environmental art project that Jane curates. This year the theme of the art project is “What a Difference 9 Years Makes”. Jane will supervise the 6 installations by returning artists from Japan, Indonesia, France, Italy and Taiwan. For more information and photos of the proposed artworks for 2018 see the Blog at https://artproject4wetland.wordpress.com
Jane started the Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project in Taiwan in 2010 and since then the project has been going on annually with Jane curating the art project and selecting artists from around the world to create site-specific environmental art installations during a 25-day artist in residency in a small fishing village in Southwest Taiwan. This photo shows an installation by Taiwanese artist Yi-chun Lo created in 2010.
In 2018 the art project will also include a symposium on “Environmental Art and Communities” and a reunion celebration May 11-14 with many of the artists that participated in the project before returning to the village as well as the 2018 selected artists. This photo shows 2 installations in Cheng Long Wetlands in 2015. The front artwork is “Earth” created by Italian artist Marisa Merlin, who is returning in 2018 to create another artwork. The artwork in back here is “Water Core” created by artist Roger Rigorth from Switzerland, now living in Germany.
For 2018 the Cheng Long art project invited only previous artists to submit a proposal, but in 2019 we expect to again have an open call for this environmental art residency project that offers selected artists a 25-day residency with airfare, accommodations, meals, volunteer help and materials help, plus a $2500 stipend.
