Free Workshop on 8/28

IMG_9954

This is a Rephotography workshop with Gary McLeod in connection with an exhibition at 1839 Contemporary Gallery in Taipei. The workshop is an opportunity to see some waterfalls, share in a collective experience of looking and contribute to an ongoing body of photographs.
Workshop Outline:

There are three waterfalls on this trail: Hegu Falls, Motian Falls and Pipa Dong falls. After a gentle hike past the first falls, we will head to Motian Falls for the following activity:

1. Rephotographing a collection of existing images of the falls, paying attention to a variety of factors (technical, contextual, historical etc.)

2. Documenting the whole process and experience from beginning to end in your own way.

3. After the workshop, all photographs generated during the workshop will be collected together and participants will be asked to make a collage of their experience. These images will later be included in an exhibition of waterfalls from Japan and Taiwan (date/location/venue TBD).

If we have time (and everyone feels okay), we will do the same activity for Pipa Dong falls.

Details:
Meetup: Sandiaoling Station 09:45.
Number of participants: 6–10 (RSVP)
Cost: FREE but you have to pay for your own transport, food etc.
Safety: Although the hike is generally safe, you are responsible for your own safety.
Requirements: good shoes, water, food, camera (of course)
WEATHER WARNING: if the weather is bad (heavy rain, typhoon etc) the event will be CANCELLED. Please check for updates.

Openly sharing the gathered visual material amongst the groups, each participant was then invited to create a collage that communicated “their” experience.

Free Art Talk by Gary at 3pm on Saturday 27th of August.  The talk’s audience will be limited to 60 people, and advance seat reservations are recommended. Meanwhile, welcome to join Gary for a participatory rephotography workshop on August 28th (Sunday).

This is the excuse that I’m making by Wannes Morino

Love, wonder, hope. That is all I need……said by Wannes Morino

‘This is the excuse that I’m making’, the young Belgian photographer Wannes Morino shows a glimpse of how his world looks like. A world that, however it is the same world we all live in, can look very dierent at times.

His crafted black and white prints show details of the world around us, mostly a ‘natural’ world without human characters. His work is the result of his wandering soul, embracing the solitude of nature and chance encounters down the road. ‘Choosing a simple lifestyle keeps my head free from clutter and open for the true joys of life.’

Through this exhibition to share Wannes’ work to an audience, and hopefully provoke emotions with the visitors, maybe a smile, a new feeling, a new hope, to share a little bit of my world with others.  Also I’m hoping to get feedback to help me get inspired and motivated for new work.

Classical techniques – platinum printing process
Kenro IZU Solo Exhibition 

Public On-View2015/10/16 (Fri)–11/29 (Sun)
Opening Reception & Artist Talk
10/31  (Sat) 14:30
Edward Chiu, Curator of 1839 Contemporary Gallery, in conversation with Artist Kenro IZU.

Free Admission

Photographer Kenro Izu was born in Osaka, Japan in 1949 and Studied at Nihon University, College of Arts in Tokyo. He has spent his life committed to photography and reviving the lost art of the platinum/palladium print. Kenro Izu’s work is widely exhibited in the United States, Europe and Japan, and is in the collections of The Boston Museum of Fine Arts, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and many other private collections.

Kenro Izu’s technique is the platinum-palladium prints. The platinum printing process requires a contact printing process which means a negative and a print will be the same size.  The print cannot be enlarged. Thus all the exhibited prints at 1839 Contemporary Gallery are made by 14×20 inch print which is same size of 14×20 inch negative using his custom 14×20 view camera.

Izu has been the recipient of the Catskill Center for Photography Fellowship in 1992, a NEA grant in 1984, the New York Foundation for Arts grant in 1985, the Lou Stouman Award in 1999, a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2001, the Vision Award from the Center for Photography at Woodstock in 2005 and a Lucie Award in 2007.
