Corner of Oxford Street and Greens Road, Paddington NSW 2021
When

Saturday 9 March from 2pm to 2:30pm

Join us for a spotlight talk with artist Idas Losin as she discusses the themes and content of her major new painting commission for the 24th Biennale of Sydney at UNSW Galleries.

Losin will provide insight into her broader practice, exploring her Taiwanese Indigenous identity and its connection to the Austronesian language group.

Idas Losin is an artist from the Truku and Atayal tribes. Since 2013, Losin has visited Easter Island (Rapa Nui), Hawai’i, Guam, Aotearoa New Zealand, Tahiti, and other places to reflect upon the art of Indigenous peoples in Taiwan by observing the connections between Indigenous peoples and mainstream society abroad. Using oil painting as her main medium, Losin adopts original colours and fine brushwork to create imagery of different characters, patterns, cultural objects and issue-focused content to express her feelings about life, compassion for the land and explorations of her own heritage.

Presented in conjunction with the 24th Biennale of Sydney, ‘Ten Thousand Suns’ at UNSW Galleries, 9 March – 10 June 2024.
