Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Tang’s art is unique in so many ways, one of which being the fact that the artist chose paper cutting, one of the most ancient ways of artistic expressions in China and the world, to put forward some of the most urgent and existential concerns of the contemporary society.
Light in its materiality but heavy in consciousness, his works challenge us and provide an alternative source for reflection as if revealing the complexity of the environmental situation in the world. Intricacies of politics, social and financial maneuvering are translated into no less intricate and elaborate paper cut designs.

Artist Profile

Born: 1987

Hometown: Hunan Province

Based in: Hunan Province

Born in 1987 in Chengzhou, China, Tang Zhengwei received his Bachelor in Mural Painting at the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, (2011) and his Master's degree in Experimental Art at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing (2018). In a range of experimental and conceptual work, he currently concentrates his artistic practice on paper cutting. Whether crafted from the label of a water bottle or milk carton, a thin sheet of rice paper or conceived as a large-scale paper-cutting sculpture, his detailed works express the artist’s profound interest in the current social, economic and environmental state of affairs in China and the world. Thorough research, scrupulous data analysis, sophisticated mathematical calculations are solidified in the intricacy of his detailed work cut out of paper.

Tang Zhengwei’s works have been exhibited in China and Japan, some of the notable exhibitions include group shows such as “Somewhere Only We Know” in Ullens Center for Contemporary Art and KWM Art Center in Beijing in 2016, as well as the exhibition dedicated to the future of Chinese Folk Art in Ichihara Lakeside Museum in Japan the same year. His first solo exhibition was held at Art+ Shanghai Gallery in 2018.
