TKG+ is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of Wu Chi-Tsung at TKG+, on view from November 10 to December 16, 2012 (opening reception on Saturday, November 10, 6:00pm-9:00pm). Wu Chi-Tsung works with a variety of different media, including photography, video, and installation, to create images which challenge the perception of our physical and natural world. Using techniques which play on the scale of everyday objects, Wu creates images and perceptions that illuminate the ephemeral aspects of nature, resulting in poetic renditions of the everyday.
In this solo exhibition, Wu Chi-Tsung creates a new installation that explores the relationship between the sublime and the minute. Wu inspired by the texturing methods (cun-fa) of Chinese calligraphy, manages to transform paper into mountain ranges, or possibly a sea of waves through crumbling and lighting these surfaces. Wu recreates landscapes through the physicality of light, paying particular attention to the way things are perceived and how the notion of landscapes can be created through simple gestures.
