Tang Jie 湯杰

With natural objects as main materials, Tang Jie's installation works explore the relationship between man and objects, the relationship between man and the society, as well as the relationship between objects and the world. Combination technology and Chinese philosophy, Tang Jie provokes the viewers’ imagination and thinking on Zen philosophy through urging them to interact with his installations. Tang Jie's art creation presents the narration of objects. Going back to the simplest state, the artist experiences the originality of human being, life and universe, explores the discipline of everything and ultimately locates the pure land in his life.
