Theme: Life - Ocean - Symbiosis
During this challenging period, IOAF proposes to focus on the issues of coexistence between humans and nature, as well as between humans themselves. This art festival brings together various forms and styles of artwork, aiming to explore the relationship between life and the ocean, as well as their interdependence. As our home and an essential part of our existence, the ocean provides not only food and livelihood but also natural, cultural, and social resources that are irreplaceable. The artwork showcased in IOAF will delve into the connection between humans and nature, particularly the interdependence between life and the ocean. The ocean, as a cornerstone of human survival and development, represents the possibility of coexistence between nature and civilization. Against this backdrop, IOAF's artwork will lead us to reflect on the relationship between humans and between humans and nature, as well as our responsibilities and duties towards coexisting and prospering together. With this profound philosophical context, we look forward to the insights and reflections brought by the artwork, and the closer and more harmonious connection between humans and nature.
