A color can also be a flavor in Hsinchu City!

The education team of Hsinchu City Art Gallery visited different schools in the city to bring the Humanae project to the classrooms. In collaboration with the teachers of the centers, they started the workshops by proposing a conversation with the children about skin colors associated to flavors. Then they distributed papers of different skin tones that the children used as a base to make their self-portraits.

The children made colour references that will surprise you : tofu bean, bubble tea, tree bark, plum syrup, peanuts, cookies, moon cake ... and we had 1 duck !

About Humanae

Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion.  It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
