Lives and Works: Singapore
Tang Da Wu is an iconic figure in contemporary Asian art. Though he works in a variety of media, he is best known for his performances and installations. Tang was noted for having founded The Artists' Village in Singapore, an experimental, multidisciplinary artists' collective, and for raising awareness on social and environmental issues through the use of mythological narratives in his work. In his practice, the importance of provocation and commentary equals or even surpasses the importance of aesthetic concerns. The interactions between individuals are emphasized as a kind of collective working process. In explaining the methodology underlying his performances, Tang has described himself as the medium through which his audience works; a method which could be described as a challenge to the conventional relationship between the performer and his audience.
