Join us for a tour led by the curator at Site, Sara Cluggish, of two immersive installations by Taiwanese artist Wu Chi-Tsung.  The ideas and techniques behind Dust were originally tested during Wu’s residency at Site Gallery in 2006, and the installation has since been shown at the Shanghai Biennial.

Wu Chi-Tsung uses everyday materials in elegant and inventive ways to create meditative, dream-like environments. Dust captures the shadows of minute, usually invisible, dust particles as they spiral around the audience to make a mesmerising abstract projection.

Crystal City 003, a newly-commissioned installation, invites the audience to witness a shifting cityscape. Filling the space with moving light and shadow, the installation draws playful parallels with the pace of urban development in Asia today.

Over lunch, generously provided by Site Gallery, we will continue the conversation about the works.

Free to Contemporary Art Society Members. To reserve a place please contact Moira Innes on or 07946 604 109.
