COP28 Will Take Place in Dubai - SUAVEART

SUAVEART, a research-based curatorial institution which focuses on environment, nonhuman perspectives and nonspaces issues in islands, art and life. We have been focused on Southeast Asian regional contemporary art since 2008. Established in Taiwan in 2015, it provides and creates experimental cultural implementation and interdisciplinary collaboration possibilities. Artistic research, art residency, curation, and international exchanges are carried out with support from industry links, art consultants, and communities.

We are concerning about culture, community, and creativity. We were invited to join the Batik Story project in Surabaya, Indonesia, held by the Total Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, South Korea. It was a wonderful experience for acquiring a lot of inspiration and thoughts on sustainability issues. After that, our projects soon had the scope to focus on social responsibilities, nature and humanistic spirit.

Many of projects demonstrate a variety of practices that SUAVEART has been doing; including the approaches to understanding our culture, nature, and society. It also shows climate change challenges that experts, artists, global citizens, and each of us are facing, while realizing our future life is in our hands.

The main programs are such as “Island Kaleidoscope”, “Seeding Future – Tropical Rainforest Research”, “InterPFL- Interpretation in future life”, and the recent project “Wagiwagi – Greeting to Nature”, which has been invited to documenta 15 in Kassel, Germany and “Asia NOW” public project at Monnaie de Paris.

In 2022, SUAVEART was invited to the G20 Summit, cultural sectors in Borobudur, Indonesia, to share the insights on “Culture as a Driver and Enabler of Sustainable Living”; we also presented “Terracotta as a Social Cohesive Force and the Interpretation of Art Application: Taking the Case of Taiwan and West Java, Indonesia” at the Southeast Asian Regional Studies Symposium in Taiwan on the theme of “Ethnicity and Region: Localities and Diversity in Southeast Asia”.

The curated residency project “Flaneur in the insular cities: Island Ecology” was presented at Rockbund Art Museum, the “Island Free Writing Workshop” was took place at the West Bund Museum in 2021, and “Ex-tension: The Dislocation of Culture and Pattern” was presented at Curatoris’ Laboratory in Poznan Poland in 2018.

We hope that through the influence of art, culture and education, we can fulfill our environmental responsibilities by establishing a sustainable business and community that enables cultures and innovative thoughts to be developed in the local area.
