In 2017 the Confucius institute as part of OzAsia festival presented the ‘Home’ installation on the University of Adelaide’s Goodman Lawns.
Developed by Hong Kong based artist Gaybird Leung, the installation consisted of a literal interpretation of the Chinese character for home (家) – a pig under a roof (or 72 to be exact), evoking Chinese traditional and contemporary ideas of home and family. Continuing on this theme we’re asking South Australian Chinese language students to let us know what ‘home’ means to them through a photography competition.
The competition asks students to take an image that represents their idea of ‘home’ and to accompany it with a short descriptor in Chinese. (10-50 characters)
The submitted photographs will be judged on their artistic merit, adherence to the theme, and on correct usage of Chinese.
Selected winners and entrants will be physically displayed at the University of Adelaide, and also on the Confucius Institute’s website and social media accounts.
