    A fingerprint is a unique human identifier. When we touch something, we leave behind a trace of our presence–proof that we engaged with our surroundings.

    Elaine K. Ng explores the evidence of human engagement, considering how materials, patterns and landscapes reflect the identity of a place and its people. This exhibition evolved from research Ng did while in Taiwan as a Fulbright Grant recipient in 2017-2018. See a blend of works including photographs, construction remnants, found objects and new creations that function as three-dimensional “fingerprints” of Taiwan as seen from Ng’s perspective. 

    “Taiwan is my mother’s homeland, and my relationship with it is an evolving one…at the root of these investigations are questions about origin and belonging – what, or who, belongs where, and who decides?” —Elaine K. Ng

    Elaine K. Ng: Fingerprints of Place – Taiwan will be on view in the Spotlight Gallery September 24, 2021 through January 23, 2022.


    With COVID-19 cases on the rise, proof of vaccination is required and masks are encouraged. No food or beverage will be served at the event.
