About the Event
After designing displays for international outposts of Hermès, Nike, and Loewe, Taiwanese artist Cheng Tsung Feng (b.1987) first American commission, Fish Trap VI, is coming to LongHouse Reserve. The human-scale bamboo pavilion synthesizes the essence of Feng’s local fishing community. The piece was built in Taipei, deconstructed, shipped, and will be reconstructed at LongHouse. Inspired by a trip to the East End last fall, Feng’s sculptural pavilion is partly fabricated with LongHouse-grown bamboo. The artist studied traditional bamboo techniques, including learning to make traditional fish traps with the Thao tribe at Sun Moon Lake, before engaging them for his own designs.
On July 13, Feng will lead a bamboo workshop inviting the visitors to build miniature fish traps weaving by hand and encouraging them to add their own personal designs.
