Invisible Permanence – Ocean Wang Solo Exhibition

In Invisible Permanence, Wang works with our fascinating relationship with, and within, time. Each work contains Wang’s signature watery refraction in which the viewer glimpses pieces of earthbound items: people, landmarks, things. But these concrete items that we recognise are the most abstract because they seem impermanent. They will disappear as soon as the droplets fall one way or another into visual, metaphorical dimensions.

The artist’s control is also impermanent: the pieces can be re-arranged, taken apart, be lost, or gained. In this way, the artist is ready to surrender her authority of how the works should look, to let abstraction draw out new theories of time, connection and art. Instead, she invites viewers to consider:

Are we looking at time or is time looking at us?
