Co-hosted by the New Taipei City Government Landscaping Office and the Juming Museum, the 2022 North Coast Light Festival plans four major exhibition areas. This festival invites numerous artists to come to the aid of this great event to showcase their artworks. Moreover, some brilliant installation arts are placed in these four display areas. The display of these installation arts makes the north coast more attractive than usual.
Building on last year's favorable reviews, the organizer once again invites the Coming True Fire Group to perform their signature fire dance. The fire show will play on the next two Saturdays.
Taking a Visit to the Installation Arts
The art pieces are placed respectively at four exhibition areas for display this year. Such as An Electronic Monster #23 - Scan the Around by Yao Chung-han, founder of the Loudly Lightning Studio, this artwork is placed at the Zhongjiao Bay International Surfing Base. This art piece is sparkling at night and the light is radiated from its ringlike structure, catching people's attention to stop by and appreciate it.
Another artistry located in the adjacent site is the bamboo-made artwork Moon in the Fire by the environmental artist Lee Kuei-chih. This artistic object combines two elements, tide and fire, to express the most down-to-earth culture sited at the seashore area in Jinshan.
The art piece Optical Gap-Moon Halo by the Tainan artist CHEN Yu-jung exhibits at Zhilan Park. Lee takes the lines of a crescent moon to express the distinct phases of the Moon. It's an artistic object symbolizing the unpredictability of life figuratively.
The artworks placed in the remaining exhibition areas include the Jinbauli, Taiwan by the paper-cutting artist Cheng Jo-han, and the image creation Fish Sauce by the anime director Yeh Yu-han. And The Shiny life Fortune Telling Machine by the Taiwan Fairy Artist Ni Jui-hung is an artistic piece. It has the creative function of guiding people on how to get onto the right path in life.
Impression of the Amazing Fire Dance Witnessing by Yourself
The Coming True Fire Group's performance last year earned favorable reviews. This troupe will perform five brilliant shows this year, including two shows at the Zhongjiao Bay on the following two Saturdays, August 27 and September 3, at 7 pm.
Virtuous Cycle to the Local: North Coast Sweet-potato-made Crayons
Collaborating with the Juming Museum, local farmers, and enterprises, the launched North Coast Sweet-potato-made Crayons are upcycling products by using leftover sweet potatoes. This cultural product made by local specialty will gift to the thirteen rural elementary schools sited along the north coast. Such a good deed spreads a virtuous cycle to the local communities & starts aesthetic education for the childhood of the younger generation as well.
