patrons

Veronique Kwak is a Taipei-based freelance artist/writer in Taiwan. Veronique has a degree in English Literature. She is very much into American film noir and crime fiction. Veronique is the first Asian scholar who publishes a paper on Sion Sono’s Guilty of Romance (2011) as she aspires to promote neo-noir in Asia. In addition, Veronique intends to contextualize feminism in Asia and she explains her ideas in numerous publications, which she publishes as“Woman, Body and Me: Veronique Kwak’s Perspective.
All of Veronique’s works are stored in her visual literature called “Lady of Whims: The Affective Dimension of Veronique Kwak,” in which she renders the essence of her emotions as well as her autistic perception of the world and its people with her first-hand calligraphic drawings.

Veronique originally places her works in her Facebook archive Lady of Whims, where she shares her improvised works with her audience.

Inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorn's "Rappaccini’s Daughter" in 1844, Veronique opened a physical exhibition called Veronique/Botanique in Taipei(Feb 23~March 25, 2018) as well as a virtual one in BreezeOnlineGallery. (March 2~April 2, 2018)

In 2018, Veronique plans to open two other exhibitions separately named as "Reptilian Love" and "Death Becomes Him."

In "Death Becomes Him," Veronique dissolves the conventional conceptualization of masculinity, defined by iconic male writers like Ernest Hemingway, with the antithesis of mermaids.
In addition, Veronique designs patterns for paper lotus, which she uses to secularize Eastern tradition in Western form. In the summer of 2017, Veronique tried to open a workshop to teach people how to make paper lotus.

In terms of Veronique's literary creation, she has written two not-yet-published novels titled "The Shattered Mirror" in 2016 and "The Tireless Love of Chris Cross" in 2017.

PodSnatcher
$10 or more per month
The term "PodSnatcher," initiated by Veronique Kwak, is inspired by the classical American sc-fi film "The Body Snatchers" (1955), in which aliens turn/homogenize humans into botanical pods - characterless and emotionless. As time goes by, "The Body Snatchers" now metaphorizes the communist witch-hunt during the 1950s as well as a mockery against a counterfeit society, where everyone is forced to act in the same ways. Therefore, PodSnatcher is a celebration of personhood by snatching the pod planted by society, culture and other people.

Thank you so much.
