“In Broad Day Light, I Do” 天窗泥裤  

A solo by Tang Da Wu 唐大霧

As an artist, one has the opportunity to fully express who he or she is. However, artists also belong to a demographic profoundly impacted by turmoil and adversity, given their sensitivity, emotional openness, and vulnerability. Frequently, they channel these challenges and vulnerabilities into their creative practices. Tang Da Wu, a Singaporean artist, exemplifies his challenges through the latest solo exhibition, “In Broad Day Light, I Do.” For decades, Da Wu has used mud as a pivotal medium, symbolising both pigment and metaphorical representations of growth and transformation. In this exhibition, mud will manifest in the form of trousers, reminiscent of objects seen in his earlier works such as doors and swords. These pieces poignantly convey our vulnerabilities alongside our aspirations for resilience, aiming to transcend adversity and reach for brighter horizons.

Tang Da Wu (唐大霧; b. 12 May 1943, Singapore–) is an iconic figure in contemporary Asian art. Though he works in a variety of media, he is best known for his performances and installations. He studied art at the Birmingham Polytechnic and Goldsmiths College, University of London, and is noted for having founded The Artists Village, an experimental, multidisciplinary artists’ collective, and for raising awareness on social and environmental issues through the use of mythological narratives in his work.
