Ling-Nah TANG’s work is inspired by the city’s transitory spaces, and it reflects on the conditions of the urban city, especially its speed and lack of intimacy and depth in interpersonal relationships.
For this residency, she used charcoal, paint, paper, masking tape and existing architectural elements in the gallery space to draw an illusionary space, taking reference from the architecture of Taipei National University of the Arts. In her work, she “de-constructs” the original real spaces and “re-constructs” them into imaginary spaces to create a sense of unfamiliar familiarity. Her drawing resembles trompe l’œil murals. Stairways, doors and windows are important features in her work.
