Visual Dialogues XXI – 我們 WO.MEN
Outer Beauty Is Inner Beauty Made Visible
Show runs September 17 2017 to October 7 2017
Artist Talk & Screening: 17 September 2017 Featuring: Kristine Huang / Pragya Borar
Kristine and I (Pragya) are good friends, artists and believers of Girl Power! We are putting up an art exhibition to express the inner and outer depths of being a women. We strongly believe in embracing the real you from within. And that Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself. First you love from within, then you can love the world!
We Love it when Women Love themselves!
We Love It when Women are learning to love themselves!
We Love it when women inspire other women to love themselves!
Through our art we hope to inspire women to embrace their real inner selves.
Kristine’s work portraits woman’s inner struggle and desire, also these paintings are her life diary, record of her own growth.
Pragya’s work tries to do justice to the fact that as a women we need to embrace our rawness openly and try not to constrain ourselves in the box.
Also we both believe the way you can get meaning in your life is to devote yourself in loving and helping others as much as you can. In the present time of massive humanitarian crisis both of us have decided to create a compassionate ripple in the world of half-asleep people through our soulful art to help fellow Syrians in their journey towards happy and peaceful future.
**60% of the money collected this exhibition will be donated to White Helmets.
“ 在創作時, 有時候我會莫名落淚, 有時候我會莫名開心, 我這才明白原來繪畫是一段尋找自我的旅程….”
Kristine 在20幅畫中, 探索女人內心的掙扎與慾望, 卻也同時發掘這些畫便是她人生的日記, 記錄著她的成長。Pragya 試著透過她的作品，鼓勵女人勇敢懷抱與接受自己的黑暗面，並努力跨出侷限自我的框架。
台灣女畫家Kristine Huang 和印度女畫家Pragya Borar共同描繪出她們所定義的”女人與自我”兩位藝術家用年輕女性的視角不但訴說著自己的故事, 其實更道出了我們的故事。

Tribe Against Machine e-Textile Summer Camp Taiwan 2017
這個國際工作坊是受e-Textile Summer Camp：一個歐洲電子織品的藝術家交流平臺的啟發，所發起的一個新策劃，本次亦邀請其中的多位藝術家參與這次與泰雅文化合作的Taiwan Camp。
This event aims to be an annual international 10-days e-textile workshop taking place within an Atayal community in Miao-Li, Taiwan. We are inviting e-textile artists, media artists, anthropologists, engineers, and tribe culture researchers to join in a dialog between technology and tradition. “The light from the lost past is being gazed upon once again and is expected to serve the future in dark.” The term machine was used in the 60’s as a synonym for the technology-driven future, whereas a tribe is a distinct, self-sufficient group that has yet to be integrated into the national society. “Tribe Against Machine” hopes for tribal communities and villages in remote areas to turn towards discussion about how future and traditions can help repair each other, and also aims to create a networking environment among these fading culture groups as an alternative to the furthering use of future technologies in society that will in the end only serve capitalism.
Selected artists will be paired into 4 groups and will be given a frame for discussion to proceed a 10-day long collaboration with Atayal traditional textile artists, using e-textile as the medium for collaboration.
This event is inspired by e-Textile Summer Camp which is an European artist platform created to share knowledge of e-textile. This year, we have invited several artists from the Summer Camp to join this Taiwan Camp to collaborate with Atayal culture.
