CYRUS TANG is one of five artists whose work makes up the new exhibition at RMIT Gallery Insistent Gestures. This exhibition brings together artists who live, work or were born in Asia to explore personal narratives.

The repetitive movements – or insistent gestures – of making carry a sense of ritual and intimate recollection that resonates with the artists’ personal histories. Here an insistent, female and labour creating subjectivity is woven into being.

Tang's bronze series Topophilia is on show, with nos. 1 & 2 visible through specially installed peepholes, and no.3 mounted on the wall.

The exhibition continues until 9 November.

Congratulations to CYRUS TANG, a finalist in this year's Banyule Award for Works on Paper.

The 2019 Banyule Award called on artists to submit artworks that address current social, cultural, political or environmental issues. In Tang's selected work, the artist has taken a 1936 encyclopaedia and burned and arranged its contents. In this transformation of material, she suggests that the knowledge of the past has disappeared and we have not learnt from history.

The finalist exhibition will run from 28 August at Hatch Contemporary Arts Space in Ivanhoe.

CYRUS TANG will be giving an artist talk at Ten Cubed on Saturday 16 March, from 11am - 12pm.

Throughout her practice, Tang employs a range of variously permanent and ephemeral materials including clay, water, ash, steam, snow, human’s heartbeat, animal bones, and human hair. These produce a visual representation suggestive of the contrast and contradiction between appearance and disappearance, and between ephemerality and permanence.

Cyrus Tang's solo exhibition at Ten Cubed continues until 4 May.
