William Pang constructs a poetic utopia with drawings and ceramics - “leftovers of an imaginary city”. Both mediums have interconnected gestures that revive an unfulfilled prophecy of the past that could remind us of the organic Art Nouveau. Pang orchestrates the traditional Chinese skills of drawing in a simultaneous narrative of contemporary urgency; the real power is that of poetry making. The dramatic imagery reveals heavy craft labor that reflects meditative nourishment. The artist offers this to the spectator as an immersive experience. Pang re-charges Chinese history with a weaving loom, appropriating tradition and adding his own visionary narrative of the future as a monk in an urban context.
The artist says of himself: “I am used to be an outsider of outsiders”.
