The culturally relative body in Evelyn Taocheng Wang’s For An Embarrassed Person… at Carlos/Ishikawa

, 1 August 2017

Evelyn Taocheng Wang presented solo exhibition For An Embarrassed Person It is Always Very Difficult To Avoid Embarrassing Things at London’s Carlos/Ishikawa, which opened May 5 and ran to June 17

The walls of the space were painted in a forest green ink, as well as the table in the centre of the room which held delicate drawings on Japanese rice paper. Other illustrations were hung around the room, made using pencil, tea, mineral colour, flower powder, acrylic color, water color, ink and other materials, and were lit by domestic lamp shades. The exhibition comes with an accompanying piece of text that takes place in a massage parlour, and a guest contribution from Sands Murray-Wassink of a painting and a white silk rose, as well as a store-bought perfume from the Amsterdam-based artist’s own collection. 

In a text by Amy Sherlock printed in Frieze this year, she describes Wang’s work as rooted in the idea that “the body is culturally relative – that what it signifies shifts according to time and place,” focusing on the politics of Orientalism and femininity through a transgender lens.**

Evelyn Taocheng Wang’s For An Embarrassed Person It is Always Very Difficult To Avoid Embarrassing Things solo exhibition was on at London’s Carlos/Ishikawa, running May 5 to June 17, 2017.
