Drawing near – an exhibition by Chin-Jie Melodie Liu

Presented by ANU College of Asia & the Pacific

Join artist and alumna Chin-Jie Melodie Liu (BVA (Hons) '20, BA '19) on her exhibition tour, Drawing Near, offering insights into understanding Taiwanese identities through photographs and objects. The exhibition documents Liu's journey of understanding her own identity as a Taiwanese woman of mixed heritage (of waisheng 外省 and bensheng 本省) through reinterpreting objects and photographs. In examining archival material, Liu further seeks to reveal the layered narratives that co-exist in contemporary Taiwanese society.  

The exhibition is a presentation of Liu's Bachelor of Visual Arts Honours (2020) thesis. The series was awarded the 2020 ANU School of Art & Design Emerging Arts Support Scheme (EASS) Megalo Print Studio & Gallery Residency Award, Country to Coast Residency and Exhibition Award, Gallery of Small Things Exhibition Award, EASS Patrons Honours Scholarship, and the Gray Smith and Joan Scott Prize.  

Viewing of the exhibition is available Monday-Friday, 10am-3pm for those who cannot make this event.
