Microscopic Forest -- the landscape of the south quarters of Taipei defined by mosses and liverworts

《三千分之一的城南 ─ 苔蘚編織的風景 創作聯展》

Dates: 10/15 (Sat) - 11/27 (Sun)

Opening: 10/15 (Sat) 14:00 PM

Venue: Corner Gallery No.2 & Shelter, Treasure Hill Artist Village

 

This is a joint exhibition by me (J.C Pottery) and two other artists: Kjohn的再生軍團 and 不歸鹿.

Together we focus on making individual works that combined with mosses or liverworts which can be found and gathered from the neighborhood of Treasure Hill and the surrounding area.

是和寶藏巖微型群聚的藝術家「不歸鹿」以及「Kjohn的再生軍團」合作,以苔蘚為主題串連,是個蠻有新意的發想和嘗試~ ~

苔蘚很小,需要觀者停下腳步,俯身親近,才能得窺其貌。然而從生物發展史上看,它卻是植物界的先驅,而且扮演著迷你雨林的角色,撐起一整個苔蘚森林的生態系。這種細小的、透過微觀的感知層面,吸引著我們對它的好奇和探索,同時也藉由各自的創作脈絡,試圖找出作品和苔蘚之間的關聯性。

展間裡的苔蘚活體,都是來自於寶藏巖和鄰近的城南地區,以不同的創作媒材相結合,也呈顯出此地都市苔蘚的豐富樣貌。

這次展期到11月底,有充足餘裕的時間,歡迎大家來看展。

Last Sunday (3/13, 15:00-16:30pm) I was invited to give some comments in a review session on the issue of "When Art meets Community" at TaoYuan Land Art Festival 2021+ symposium with two other young artists.

Very happily to see an old friend 純用 again. He is the host of our session.

After the session, 純用 showed us his works for this year's event. We took several photos together. Thanks to Wanwen Huang and her student.

About the Exhibition: 

《歧境》Sideway

-- 周靈芝創作展


展期:2021.11.6~11.28
開放時間:周二~周日 11AM~6PM


展出內容:( 順時鐘方向 Clockwise )

《Beauty is only skin deep》(美麗只是一層皮)
《須彌。芥子(微米尺度)》(Sumera on a micrometric scale)
《疊》(Piling up)
《莫名所以的物件》(Non-functional objects)


歧境,是一種心境的映照。
在學習與陶為伍的路上,我總是不斷被分岔出去的旁徑所吸引,
這些高高低低、曲曲折折的蜿蜒小徑,通往一個又一個偏離主道的歧境。
有時,歧境卻也是奇境,讓人流連不已。

"Living seeds in the waste salt field" A Documentary short film on the ecological art activism in Southwestern Taiwan

"Living seeds in the waste salt field" is a 10-minutes short film by documentary film maker Chiu T'sai-Cho (邱彩綢) on the ecological art activism in Budai, a fishing town on the Southwest coast, Taiwan, seeking to review the project after 10 years. I am one of the three interviewees in the film.
