CHENG LONG ART RESIDENCY
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chenglong Wetlands is a wetland in Kouhu Township, Yunlin County, Taiwan. The wetland was formed due to the low altitude of the lower Hukou Village of Kouhu Township and the overuse of groundwater over the years. Those factors contributed to the land subsidence of the area which make it prone to flooding. More sea water encroachment are also brought by the frequent typhoon happening in Taiwan, which eventually turned the area into wetland.
From TransArtists website: This residency is for artists from around the world to create site-specific environmental sculpture installations focused on environmental issues working with the community and local elementary school students. Artists from all countries are invited to send a proposal for a site-specific outdoor sculpture installation to be created during the 25-day artist in residency
Artworks will be in village public spaces, on abandoned buildings, and in the wetlands nature preserve, and artists will use recycled materials and natural materials to create their artworks that will stay on exhibition during one year.
