Title: What is Place (no longer on site)

Artist: Wen-Chih Wang   Exhibition year: 2007

WANG: A WEAVING The largest piece is Wang's Bridge, wherein trees become a living loom through which branches and limbs of resident scrub brush are secured using pliable rattan. It is an enclosure, a contemplative space, a space in transition, a channel from earth to sky to water. To engage with the work is to enter a space, to travel across and through, emerging at one end deeper in the forest and at the other, aloft amidst the tree canopy and overlooking the lake. 
While Wang describes his Bunker Museum piece as a searching for harmony after catastrophe, the suggestion of crisis amelioration is not specific in the Canadian work, which is more suggestive of the deep natural history of Canada's old forests and their early inhabitants. He describes his process as a borrowing of ancient forms by which viewers are led to experience the embodiment of the primitive setting.What remains is a purity of experience, one that brings forth a longing for undefined notions of the primitive.
