Programme ➔ Artist Residencies ➔ Whisper Residency (2003-2013)
2010 Sep 11 (is beginning date)
2010 Sep 25 (has end date)
London based artist Fiona Long took part in a Whisper residency to develop a project about the history of and imagery calligraphy. The artist worked in collaboration with calligraphers, Mary Tang and Cathy Wu, who were exhibiting at the Centre during her residency. The artist took part in workshops with the experience artists to develop her ideas further. The artist’s work focused on symbols which represent one thing, but in translation mean something completely different. Long aimed to transform the traditional symbols in hope her interpretations alter the meaning of characters while showing how images can transcend language.
