Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

Tonight I went to Artspace for the open studio invite from Laura who is the coordinator. I did an access audit for them and it is really cool to see they have put some of my suggestions to work.

They are busy trying to get funding for a lift to go down to the basement. So we had a few presentations from different artists and exhibitors and I started a conversation with Gaelle Roche who specialises in her artwork on glass. Gaelle is originally from Normandy and she explained her work to me.

Her work is lovely and she puts them to a practical application. They can be incorporated into interiors - such as dividers, bathroom fixtures, splashbacks in kitchens etc.


More of her artwork can be found at her website .

I really like this one of Venice canal - it is with apague glass, she said.


Many thanks to Laura who organised the event -and for inviting me!


Laura
