Artists from all countries are invited to send a proposal for a site-specific outdoor sculpture installation to be created during a 25-day artist in residency in Cheng Long, a small rural village near the southwestern coast of Taiwan in Kouhu Township, Yunlin County. This art project is an expansion of the 2010 and 2011 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Projects, going into the Village as well as the Wetlands. This year the selected artists will work with elementary school children and community residents to create large-scale sculpture installations focused on the theme of “What’s for Dinner?”

The 2012 art project will help to promote awareness of how our food is produced and the importance of sustainable and organic practices in aquaculture. Artworks will be site specific and located on, in and around existing village structures, old houses, abandoned buildings, vacant
lots, underneath the roadway, beside the highway and in Cheng Long Wetlands, a wetlands nature preserve created by rising waters and land subsidence. The artworks will be made with recycled and natural materials that are part of the daily lives of the village residents. The artworks should be made to last for two years or more. Artists will work alongside other international artists and Taiwanese artists and with children and village residents in Cheng Long, Kouhu Township, Yunlin County, Taiwan.
