Tang Da Wu

Earth Work, 1979

Earth Work, originally staged at the National Museum Art Gallery In 1980 by Singaporean artist Tang Da Wu, was one of the earliest exhibitions of land art in Singapore. Earth Work 1979, a restaging of selected works from the seminal 1980 exhibition, revisits Tang's then unparalleled usage of organic materials and public spaces. This catalogue delves deeper into Tang's practice and the circumstances of the creation of his earth works through a rich copmendium of essays, interviews, newspaper articles and never-before-seen photo-documentation.
