Rootless Orchids opens at Towson’s Asian Arts & Culture Cent
Location: 7700 Osler Dr., Room 2037, Towson, MD 21204
Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM (02:00 Duration)

Rootless Orchids features work by Taiwanese and Taiwanese-American artists focusing on shifting identities in the United States and East Asia. Curated by Fang Yu Lee, a candidate in MICA’s Curatorial Practice MFA program, the exhibit looks at transforming memories of immigration and notions of diaspora into microcosms of visual experience. The artists explore the issues of stateless identity in the postcolonial present, as well as diaspora, nomadism, and labor mobility. The artists seek to create a safe space within their exhibition in which Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders can freely talk about their experiences, and let their voices be heard.
The exhibition will display the work of four artists: Chiehsen Chiu, Yi-An Pan, Pei-Hsuan Wang, and Yin-Ju Chen. Yin-Ju Chen’s three-channel projection touches on state violence and government oppression from the late twentieth century, including the Nepalese Civil War and ethnic cleansing in Indonesia. Her work incorporates occultism and astrology to examine humans as objects influenced by larger forces—the larger forces often being the government or the unknown power from the universe. Her work examines whether people have free will, or are subject to forces beyond themselves.
Chiehsen Chiu’s blood vessels-like map configurations reflect how humans are changing along with their environment. With his unique medium of using maps, he traces the lineage of human cultural development and intertwines it with his personal understanding of the surrounding environment. The work reveals a correlation between globalization and a disintegration of “place.”
Pei-Hsuang Wang’s single channel video and sculptures tackle the issue of refugees in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Filmed in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Thailand. Moonlight Flit features a traveling English/Australian man, a former Thai domestic helper living in Hong Kong, a Bangladeshi asylum seeker in Hong Kong, and an Indonesian caretaker in Taiwan. Through unique elements of each diasporic individual's story, the film follows the humbled movements of restless bodies across borders and regions and begins to imagine the possibilities of connections in labor and mobility.
Yi-An Pan’s primary medium is paint, but her inspirations are based on Google images. She sees her paintings as maps, a way to navigate, explore, and investigate how unfamiliar places become familiar and home-like. A Taiwanese artist now living in the United States, Yi-An Pan draws from both cultures to show the change and confusion as identity shifts. Her imagery reflects the changing landscape of Taiwan, as well as places in the U.S. that draw her interest. These are places that may not exist anymore due to development, alongside images of places in the U.S. that she finds intriguing.

If you love to dance, this is the fitness class for you. All fitness levels are welcome and no experience is necessary.
This is an all Toning Zumba class where light weights are used for the entire class; thus a slightly amplified workout. The music is mostly World and Latin rhythms with top 40 sprinkled in. I guaranteed you will love it. If you have any concerns/questions or want to know how you can try a class for FREE, please call 410-535-7080 or message me on Facebook.
