ong Kong artist Tsang Kin-Wah critically addresses some of the complexities surrounding migration, cultural identity and racism in these site-specific works. At Vancouver Art Gallery’s public art space, Offsite Tsang presents a large-scale composition using English texts to form floral and animal patterns.
Deceitfully decorative, the content draws from discriminatory language that appeared in newspapers and political campaigns in Vancouver during the 1887 anti -Chinese riots, the mid-1980s immigration from Hong Kong and most recently, the heated exchanges around the foreign buyers and the local housing market.
