"Tang Guo: Human Territory"
2005-03-18 until 2005-03-31
ShanghArt
Shanghai, , CN China

In the March spring, Shanghart Gallery will present “Human Territory”, the latest photographyic works by Tang Guo, in H Space. The name “Human Territory” comes from the poem “Drinking” by Tao Yuan Ming, which says, “I reside in the human territory, free of the earthly noise”. During 2003/04, Tang spent almost 2 years to take these pictures in some countryside residences in southern Anhui. The images are some public areas in those aged residences, such as yards and living rooms, without specific persons, objects or events. As mentioned by Mr. Tang, he doesn’t want to express any special implications by these pictures. It is only his perceptions on time, and he is trying to fix and extend time by the realistic media of photography. 

The pictures of water are to express my feeling on Confucius's feeling on the running water.  And these pictures are to express my feeling on the solidation or loss of time, i.e., "Time elapses fast!" There is no story in my pictures, nor literature, thought, philosophy, folk or architecture.  They are not used to criticize or appreciate, without any concepts. They are only pictures! As to what you may perceive or think, it depends on you. --Tang Guo
