Oh yes, this is right up my alley. Hong Kong based artist Tsang Kin-Wah incorporates text and type to create dynamic installations. From painted floral-like wall patterns that upon closer inspection are made up of letters and Chinese characters, to his ongoing video installation series titled The Seven Seals, Kin-Wah envelops the viewer in type. The texts formed by that type pose questions on existence drawing from biblical, political and philosophical writings, in many cases meant to provoke a range of feelings from the spectator reminding us of issues like war, terrorism, revolution, death, murder, suicide, self-denial, etc.
Presently the latest installation in The Seven Seals, The Fifth Seal – HE Shall Deliver You Up To Be Afflicted And Killed As HE Was, is being shown at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo through January 15, 2012.
