Taiwanese artist Charwei Tsai's memorising and compulsive writing of the Heart Sutra—a Buddhist scripture that distills the wisdom of impermanence—is at the heart of her practice. Over the past ten years, Tsai has moved from writing to drawing, photography, and film—a selection of which is being presented at the Centre for Chinese...

Crush at Para Site: What if you couldn’t have it? Ocula Report Crush at Para Site: What if you couldn’t have it? 10 November 201810 Nov 2018 : Hera Chan for Ocula

Drawn on paper by Oscar Chan Yik Long in gestural black ink strokes, Cupid (2015) greets visitors with a sinister toothy smile as they enter Para Site.

Megan Jenkinson is an Associate Professor at the Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland, New Zealand. She works primarily in the medium of photography and has exhibited over a 30 year period, both nationally and internationally. Including the Esslingen Photo Triennale, 1989, the Sydney Biennale, 1990, and the Sharjah Biennale in 1999, and in significant exhibitions such as Photography Now, 1989 at the Victoria and Albert Museum (to commemorate the first 150 years of photography).

She went to Antarctica as an Antarctic Artists Fellow in December 2005 and her experiences there have resulted in an extensive body of work that will be exhibited during the Photography Festival in 2008 at Two Rooms. She is currently preparing work for an installation at the Christchurch Art Gallery featuring the fossils collected by Scott’s Polar Party on their fated return journey from the Pole in 1912.

Jenkinson’s earlier project, The Virtues, 1996, went to eight public venues in New Zealand, and its accompanying book Under The Aegis: The Virtues, 1997. This series was awarded a major prize in 1999 by an international jury at the Sharjah Biennale.

In directing interest towards formal and spatial relationships, Jenkinson curiously makes the subjects of these photographs entirely universal and detached, (paradoxically) from any specific time or place.
