The Kaohsiung International Container Arts Festival has been held once every two years since 2001, and has become a distinctive Kaohsiung event. Every container work has borne witness to the role of maritime shipping, and its ups and downs, in Kaohsiung's evolving civilization over the past decade. The artists have used their wonderful talents to transform each empty container into something unexpected, and created a marvel out of every rusty, bent waste container.
The 2011 Container Arts Festival has a theme of "Artbitat." We welcome domestic and foreign artists to exercise their imaginations on the interior or exterior of the container, using interactive installations, painting, or creative reconfigurations to create visions of the "home" transcending time and place.
This exhibition seeks to let viewers share the artists' skills, humor, creative and incredible ideas via the container's characteristic of "mystery yet openness." The works will enable people to overcome their impression of the container as being cold, hard, bulky, vaguely threatening, and instead find that they inspire the imagination about life. The Container Arts Festival will give Kaohsiung?the major port city in the island country of Taiwan?a chance to broadcast its limitless maritime appeal.The selected artists may receive production and materials fees of NT$220,000
