All Our Yesterdays - Cyrus Tang

Porcelain Makes Permanent That Which Is Emphermeral

11 - 26 November 2016

Nicholas Projects presents

From Clare Flynn's exhibition essay:
Taken as a purely visual display, the pieces that comprise All Our Yesterdays are intricately detailed, haunting reminders of the former life of an object uniquely treasured in the human experience. Beyond the exhibition's visual impact, the tightly knotted world of objects and ideas unfurls through the artist's subject choices and rendering. The pages of the encyclopaedia have been removed from the world of objects and returned the raw material, which - in cyclical fashion = Tang has imbued with her understanding of what happens to objects after their effective presence has faded.
