The Little Bridge
by Kim Engelen
From 1-7 October 2018 I lived and worked at Meihuazhou Scenic Spot in Jiaxing.
For 6 days, I created new artworks while residing at Tanlu Qiling Homestay.
During the artist in residence, I collected via word of mouth stories, legends, images, songs, poems and all things essentially related to the more than 1000-year-old Sanbu Liangpan bridge.
Every day I made 1 new artwork and exhibited the new work the same day while continuing to make new artworks. The exhibition space was presented as an artist studio where people could walk in to see the artworks in progress.
I assembled items related to Chinese culture and showed these together with printed photographs and videos. Each day the exhibition changed and grew, until on day 6, the final day of the artist in residence, 6 new artworks were presented in an exhibition titled: The Little Bridge.
