“Dog Bark” is a solo exhibition by Shanghai-based artist Tang Dixin (b. 1982). He is known for his works which ironically criticize the problems of the Chinese society and art world, and is recognized as one of the representing artists of the new generation in China. Tang’s debut solo presentation in Singapore will feature 10 paintings from his most recent series.
Tang works with various media such as painting, performance art and installation art. While his works may differ in medium, they echo in the radical sensibility of Tang, supplementing one another as significant aspects of his artistic practice. Tang’s paintings are often concerned with social commentary, alongside a sense of anxiety and restlessness. This series also has an added sense of the personal, following an incident in the beginning of the year where the artist was bitten by a dog, which stirred within him manic emotions and an unexplainable delusion of death.
