CB1 Gallery proudly presents its first solo exhibition of the work of artist Fang Ling-An, Everything is Stitching Together Simultaneously. Aware of her family’s historic and turbulent journey from Mainland China to Taiwan, Fang Ling-An has consciously reflected upon issues of ‘displacement’ and sense of ‘belonging’ that is common to most Chinese immigrants. As a result, her pieces center on issues of migration, displacement, tradition and identity. The show opens on May 29, 2010 and closes on June 27, 2010.
The work in the upcoming show reflects on the artist’s exploration of how traditional Chinese culture has overlapped contemporary American culture. In Everything is Stitching Together Simultaneously, the embroidered pieces are perfectly stitched highlighting every minuscule detail and figure. While only a few pieces by the artist show this ‘perfect’ handwork, most of her other pieces will be showing a more abstract side, which, intriguingly, stand in stark contrast to the perfect images.
