CURRENT EXHIBITION | TABULA RASA GALLERY
Tissue and tissue paper
DATE: 2016.11.5 - 2016.12.24
ARTIST: Tant Zhong (Zhong Yunshu)
Tabula Rasa Gallery is pleased to present solo exhibition of Tant Zhong:Tissue and tissue paper on Nov. 5th, 2016. This is Tant Zhong’s first solo exhibition in Tabula Rasa Gallery.
Preparation for this exhibition started with collecting and classifying various materials and information. Like all material manifestations, or causations of events, after a period of observation you discover certain inner logic in them.
The autonomy of things/materials are revealed in the “on and off” connections between installations presented. Some “grouping” and “coupling” effects are deliberately arranged to allow a certain tempo in the exhibition. (Groupings: wooden pallets in their sculptural sense, light bulbs in the photo, rubbers that are as thick as the picture frame, missing eggs evidenced by the empty egg trays… Couplings: stainless-steel bars, two missing light bulbs in the photo, rearview mirrors inconspicuously living in the corner, a brand new roll of packaging tape and a half-finished roll...) Observances relating to “crowds” and “individuals” pop up serendipitously in mind as if these objects have gained humanity.
