From Lausanne to Beijing 8th International Fiber Art Biennale
1895 creative cultural industry park
Nantong (Jiangsu Province)
The works are already hanging, the organisers are making the last arrangements for the official opening today, 30 September at 3:00 p.m. East China time (about 9:00 a.m. CET). I won’t be there this time; will have to wait patiently for news from co-exhibitors and the catalogue after the end of the exhibition together with the return my works. The exhibition is of course certain to be big again, but not exhausting I must say. The former factory where it is held is something like the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam or the Technopolis-Gazi in Athens.
But here is a part of the forward from the organisers*:
“…Since 2000, “From Lausanne to Beijing” international fiber art exhibition has been held for 7 sessions which has come through 14 years. It has gradually become an international well-known brand with a development pattern of popularization, socialization and internationalization…
…There are 655 pieces of artwork applying for the 8th Biennale （including 363 works from China and 292 works from other countries). 186 pieces of artwork were admitted into the ‘From Lausanne to Beijing’ 8th International Fiber Art Biennale Exhibition（including 75 works form China and 111 works from other countries. In 2014, with the invitation of the Nantong government, the 8th biennale will still be held in 1895 creative cultural industry park in Nantong City…”
I volunteer for tele-transportation! (…have been volunteering since the 80’s in vain…)
