Richmond Art Gallery is pleased to present NOURISH, an exhibition by artist Jane Wong, and artist duo, Mizzonk, Wan-Yi Lin and Roger Chen opening Saturday, January 22.
Nourishment – its scope and significance – lies at the heart of the works of Jane Wong, and artist duo, Mizzonk. How we are nourished, often characterized in terms of deprivation or abundance, can rouse memories of deep emotional intensity. Wong, a Seattle-based poet and artist, draws upon her experience of growing up in a Chinese American restaurant in New Jersey, and her family’s history of hunger and poverty in China.
Taiwanese born artists, Lin and Chen, live and work on six secluded acres in Greater Vancouver, a practice in living that has provided sustenance and inspiration for the past twenty years. Wong and Mizzonk present two installations respectively: After Preparing the Altar, The Ghosts Feast Feverishly* and Six Acres.
