Remember me when the sun goes down by Cyrus Tang

Cyrus Tang’s latest exhibition is a continuation of her exploration of presence through absence. Drawing on her personal experiences of 2020, Tang seeks to find images that address our collective experience. As a master of other worlds and of transforming the everyday, Tang has created hauntingly beautiful composite digital images, each one focussing upon a single recurrent motif, that reconstruct and make permanent shifting cerebral states.
