Artist Statement
Tang extends his mapping out to the city and into the parks themselves, where he creates intermittent interventions in collaboration with composer Charles Kwong and a small group of musicians. Here, at fixed hours during the week, they perform a kind of musical mapping on instruments that imitate the sounds of the birds and other animal life that inhabit these small urban oases. These unusual mini-concerts inside the “pocket parks” create a kind of poetic incongruity that Tang hopes will make visitors curious, perhaps inspire them to pause and listen and, ultimately, to become attentive to the park environment in a different, less habitual way. However tenuously, and however briefly, through his art Tang maps pathways that take the audience through a familiar topography, but that yet may lead them to unexpected destinations.
