ShanghART Singapore presents a solo exhibition by our artist-in-residence, Tang Maohong, from 4 May to 14 July 2019. Taking inspiration from Paul Gauguin’s travelogue Noa Noa: The Tahitian Journal. Such a reference reflects the artist’s initial impression of Southeast Asia as a place of lush greenery and azure skies, with big clouds and strong shadows; contrasting yet harmonious landscapes. Aside from being part of the artist’s childhood memory, the book brings forward an important principle in art practice–a work is ultimately the product of stimulations from the artist’s environment. As such, the limited duration of a residency forces the artist to treat his journey as a catalyst; the foreign land thus becomes some sort of incubator for pre-existing ideas.
