Why This Word

Deluge Contemporary Art, Victoria, BC - Jul 16 – Aug 28

by Robin Laurence

Along with its explorations of various narrative forms used in describing women’s lives, this exhibition is charged with cross-cultural energies and inspirations. Organized by Ying Peng, a Taiwanese curator living in Mexico City, it features the work of two Taiwan-based artists, Hou I-Ting and Wang Yahui, and a Mexican artist based in the United States, Valentina Jager. The show’s title throws the literary and cultural net even wider, inspired as it is by the Ukrainian-born Brazilian novelist Clarice Lispector.
