Cheng Long Wetlands
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. This art project is an expansion of the 2010 and 2011 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Projects, going into the Village as well as the Wetlands. The selected artists will work with elementary school children and community residents to create large-scale sculpture installations focused on the theme of “Fishing for a Better Environment?” The artworks should reflect on environmental issues surrounding food production and emphasize organic aquaculture. 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.
