Art of Nature Contemporary is delighted to present exhibition by Tang Yinjiu on January 26, 2024. The opening will be on January 26, from 2:30 to 6 PM. The exhibition will be on view to 16 Feb.

The concept of “Rumble” originated from the artist Tang Yinjiu’s own novel A Chair in the Air. “Rumble” (hōng/gwang1) represents both the crashing sound of heavy objects collapsing and the roaring sound of raging fires. To fall and to rise, rising into the air and dissipating into ashes, are not only the norms of life but also the most essential forms of existence. Through “Rumble”, the artist expresses the attitude towards life, which is exhilarating and powerful, uplifting, and decisive.

Following the success of his previous exhibitions, “Faces” in 2018, “Object Performance” in 2019, “Garden, Reconciliation with the World” in 2022, and “Melancholic Iceberg” in 2023, Tang Yinjiu continues to explore themes and artistic expressions. Through poetry, novels, paintings, images, and installations, he presents significant features of embodied and intertextual creations.

This exhibition features a collection of over 30 paintings and video works. Most of the pieces use ready-made and discarded materials, plywood, old carpet, cloths and papers for wiping the brushes, lacquer and cement, cutting old paintings into fragments and reconstructing them into new works. The innovation in media and artistic expressions better conveys the theme of this exhibition, life and death, deconstruction, and reconstruction.

Artists also use this to express their emotions and blessings for Hong Kong’s long-term life: “Hong Kong is a city with exceptional resilience, currently recovering its inherent strength and vibrancy. The artist hopes that Hong Kong residents will feel a profound resonance with the concept of ‘Rumble’, as well as deeply feel the power and love contained in each work. Through this exhibition, the artist wishes to express support for Hong Kong’s continued resilinece and prosperity”.

About Artist
Tang Yinjiu

Tang Yinjiu, an artist, poet, and novelist, was born in Hunan in 1965 and currently resides in Taipei and Hong Kong. In 2018, he gained attention for his Hong Kong solo exhibition “Face” and was hailed by the media as a “pain aesthetic artist”. His creations are considered by the academic community to have two major characteristics: systematic and intertextual – paintings and installations are often associated with his novels and poetry. I have held solo exhibitions and participated in group exhibitions in multiple locations.
