A Step In Time Across The Line: Recent Work by Chee Wang Ng

The Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University will present A Step In Time Across The Line: Recent Work by Chee Wang Ng 一步之時,跨越界線: 吳子雲近作個展 Curated by Judith A. Stubbs, Pamela Buell Curator of Asian Art.

What does it mean to be Chinese in today’s diverse global society? Through multimedia works of photography, sculpture, video, and installation, Chee Wang Ng asks this question and explores the possibilities with image rich tableaux of artifacts that range from documentary material to kitsch. With the rise of Chinese engagement with the world-at-large, Chee Wang Ng’s work re-contextualizes not only traditional Chinese cultural imagery, but also modern constructions of race, identity and stereotyping viewed through the lens of history.

A Step In Time Across The Line 一步之時,跨越界線 (2016-17) will be featured together with 108 Global Rice Bowls - Installation 壹佰零捌個全球化飯碗-裝置藝術 (2012) and In The Name of Our Forefathers - Clear Tea, Light Rice 以先祖之名 - 清茶淡飯 (2014-15) both in new configuration, and a selection of large-format photography prints from Eaten Your Fill of Rice? Series 食飽飯未呀? 系列 (1998 - ongoing).

Contemporary Asian Art and Exhibitions - Connectivities and World-making

In the essay "The Unexpected Guest: Food and Hospitality in Contemporary Asian Art" by Dr. Francis Maravillas in the book "Contemporary Asian Art and Exhibitions - Connectivities and World-making" edited by Dr. Michelle Antoinette and Dr. Caroline Turner, published by the Australian National University Press, 2014; he wrote "Moreover, given its prosaic association with the everyday within particular cultural contexts, it is perhaps not surprising that food is also often figured as a trope of identity and difference, as evinced by the symbolic use of rice as a national staple, commodity and spiritual offering in Singaporean artist Zai Kuning’s installations and New York-based Malaysian artist Chee Wang Ng’s 吳子雲 photography, and by the gendered coding of Thai artist Pinaree Sanpitak’s multi-flavoured, breast-shaped desserts."

Readymade@100 at the American University Museum

“108 Global Rice Bowls 壹佰零捌個全球化飯碗” 2008 is chosen by Mark Cameron Boyd in the exhibition Readymade@100 at the American University Museum, Washington, DC celebrating the 100th anniversary of Marcel Duchamp’s readymade concept. A curated collection of the contemporary take on readymades that significantly expand upon Duchamp's originary idea. He wrote in the exhibition catalogue essay with the video still, "The combination of commodity objects, itself a remnants of the Surrealist theory of juxtaposition, can awaken subliminal eanings in the viewer, infusing the objects with reverie, apprehension or humor… Chee Wang Ng 吳子雲 offers 108 Global Rice Bowls in the exhibit’s only video, featuring a harmonic succession of differing white bowls, each heaped with rice and accompanied by a single chime." Michael O'Sullivan in his art review for The Washington Post, "But the funniest, sexiest and smartest show of the bunch is a celebration of the 100-year-old legacy of Marcel Duchamp’s concept of the “readymade.” " A full color catalogue with essay by Mark Cameron Boyd was published and supported by the Wolpoff Family Foundation.
