ASL Translated Video Installation
An interactive mixed media art installation called “Lost & Found” will be exhibited to unfold the journey from being lost to finding oneself. Living in between diverse cultures, identities, and disabilities, the artist finds it not always easy to blend into a new city as a queer immigrant. Through this installation, the artist shares an artistic way of finding inner peace, courage, and love from being disoriented in life. Instructions for the interactions with the installation will be shown on-site. Through the interactions, audiences will be encouraged to reflect on their own lived experiences.
No Registration Needed. Free Entrance. Didactics and information will be available in English and Mandarin as well as an audio description tour with ASL interpretation. This installation will also be exhibited at the Atrium at Richmond Cultural Centre from Oct 7th to Oct 12th.
This event was made possible with local support from Grunt Gallery.
Peisen Ding — BC Culture Days Ambassador
Peisen Ding is a visual artist and an art educator living on the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. Peisen’s art practice often involves the exploration of urban relationships, such as relations with other individuals and built environments, through photography, painting, pottery, installation and/or whatever medium and form arise organically in the process. As a queer Chinese immigrant, it is also important for Peisen to discover what life brings when living with different identities and cultures, and how art can show care, love, and courage to others who have similar backgrounds. Peisen believes that art can not only help us see and empower ourselves but also has the responsibility to unfold what is happening and changing in society. This view has led Peisen to research education, diving deeper into what art can bring to the learning of ourselves and the world around us.
