"Regards croisés, Paysages Taiwanais (Crossed Fertilizations: Taiwanese Landscapes),” an exhibition featuring installations and recordings on the landscapes of Taiwan, will be showcased in Normandy from July 17 through Sept. 30.
Under the auspices the National Culture and Arts Foundation, the exhibition is curated by professor Chen Hung-yi (陳泓易) from Tainan National University of the Arts in collaboration with French curator Alice Mallet. It will be offered at two venues in Varengeville-sur-Mer — Bois des Moutiers and Collection Shamrock.
The exhibition, which took two years to complete, began when the two curators carried out a plant survey on Alishan Mountain in Taiwan. It will display architectural works, paintings, installations, and videos to explore the nature, culture, and landscape of Taiwan, and present discernable influence from France.
Featured artists such as Eric Chen (陳宣誠) will present large installations including "Suspension Bridge (懸橋)” and "Floating Mountain (浮山).”
Hung Tien-yu (洪天宇), an artist who records the scenery and landscape of Taiwan through photography and paintings, will showcase his paintings at the outdoor Collection Shamrock alongside four videos.
The exhibition is part of the Post-Ecolonialism Project, an artist movement that began organized tree-planting outings to repopulate mountains with native plants after Typhoon Morakot ravaged Taiwan in 2009.
An opening party will be hosted by Mayor Patrick Boulier of Varengeville-sur-Mer on July 17.
