Wu Chi-Tsung: Dust
- 4 April — 31 May 2014 *on now
Taiwanese artist Wu Chi-Tsung returns to Site Gallery, bringing Dust to the UK for the first time. The ideas and techniques behind Dust were originally tested during Wu’s residency at Site Gallery in 2006, and the installation has since been shown at the Shanghai Biennial.
Wu Chi-Tsung uses everyday materials in elegant and inventive ways to create meditative, dream-like environments. Dust captures the shadows of minute, usually invisible dust particles, as they spiral around the audience to make a mesmerising abstract projection.
Crystal City 003, a newly-commissioned installation, invites the audience to witness a shifting cityscape. Filling the space with moving light and shadow, the installation draws playful parallels with the pace of urban development in Asia today.
These two key works form the final part of Recalibrate, the artist’s first UK solo showcase supported by Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture, and in collaboration with Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art and Peter Scott Gallery.
