ISSUE 32 : Art and Commitment
Report on the Environmental Art in Taiwan
April 21st, 2017Type: Opinion
Author: 吳虹霏 Editor: Rikey Tenn
Note: Beyond the environmental threats facing Taiwan, the concept of environment originating from the West and the corresponding wave of the art trend is, nevertheless, indeed the key factor ushering the development of Taiwan’s “environmental art.” The authentic caring spirit for the environment often results from the transcendence from the pursuit of the personal achievement or the collaboration projects summoned by the joint ideals. Mali Wu‘s work and practice after the Millennium, as an example, often incorporate environmental issues. It shall rather be considered social innovation than art to instill the softer but tougher souls to this land; the ultimate goal for these people is more about social sustainability than environmental preservation.
