    Is our Christian God exclusively “Male”? Can we image our God as “female”? Or, any other imaginations? If we do not use “Him” to name our God, do we worship idol?

    A feminist theologian Rosemary Radford Ruether said in her book Sexism and God-talk, “The liberating encounter with God/ess is always an encounter with our authentic selves resurrected from underneath the alienated self…Intimations of Her/His name will appear as we emerge from false naming of God/ess modeled on patriarchal alienation.” A group of Divinity School of Chung Chi College students display their understanding of God’s image in the coming exhibition “Re-presentation of God’s Image”, you are welcome to know, to participate in and to imagine with us:

    Artist Statement:
    “&” indicates somewhere in between. We use “&” to symbolize how love evades any simple definition, as well as its nature of connection. Through love individuals are bonded together. During the process they are impacted by both sweetness and bitterness, and transform into another being they would never thought of. In this exhibition, 4 artists present how they are affected by different experiences in relationships, and how these art pieces represent their notion of love.
