PateRongan is founded on the goal of returning to the intimacy between humans and the land. Using local materials and ancient craftsmanship, PateRongan seeks to present a sense of modern aesthetic of rustic quality and warmth that calls to the inner light in the depths of our soul.
Driven by her love for nature and indigenous culture, artist Chen Shu Yen traveled to the east coast, Hualien, and built an artistic career with Kavalan craft artist Tuwak·Tuyaw. Aiming to preserve the precious craftsmanship and to summon the inner dialogue with nature, the two artists work together using local materials, thus establishing PateRongan.
Integrating ancient skills and local material involved in tribal craftsmanship, such as Sanku bamboo rattan fish trap, bark cloth, plant dye, and handmade paper, while preserving the techniques and legacy involved, PateRongan creates simple modern the craft works, artistic lighting, and spatial installations with innovation.
