Cyrus Tang will present a series of photographic works and light boxes that explore presence and absence.

Drawing on her personal experiences of 2020, she has created hauntingly beautiful composite digital images that seek to depict the slowing down of time, the repetition in our daily lives and the increased space afforded to us during lockdown to observe, think and feel. The layers of imagery are like ghostly veils, or fogs, that converge on a condensed, vibrating detail.

The exhibition also includes an installation work that separates the many layers that make up her photographic images, allowing visitors to walk between and around each layer. Time Fell Asleep in the Evening Rain reflects Tang’s continued examination of the paradox of reconstructing ephemeral mental images and sensations in permanent materials.
