國家,將蔬果植物散播到全世界。

Wen-Jen Deng graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (L’ENSB-A) in Paris, France. Recently, she has been working on soft sculptures made with natural dyes, together with woven and embroidered maps. Deng’s latest creation, Pingpu Origins, focuses on Taiwan’s historical events, indigenous culture, and ethnic integration issues. Fond of mountaineering and hiking, Deng has climbed many high mountains in Taiwan. She enriches her creations by integrating the history, myths, legends, and ethnic migration paths into tapestry and map art. The theme of this residency in the United States is the age of great navigation in the world: “the globalization movement on the table”, how fruits and vegetables are spread all over the world.

This residency is made possible by an artist residency partnership between 18th Street Arts Center and the Taiwan Academy.
