Manga Ormolu Nano-a
ceramic, mixed media and wooden stand
signed and dated 2018
8 x 7 3/4 x 4 in  20.3 x 19.7 x 10.2cm

This work by Brendan Tang is a continuation of the ongoing ceramic series titled Manga Ormolu. At its core, the Manga Ormolu series seeks to explore the hybridity found throughout our culture; be it in our history’s merge with our future, or our body’s interplay with our technology, or even our person struggles with identity in the social media age that requires us to be in many places at once. Manga Ormolu presents a meditation on these struggles in a seemingly innocuous format of the decorative arts.

This body of work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally,at institutions such as Musee national des beaux-arts du Quebec, Museo Internazionale Della Ceramiche in Italy and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Tang’s work is in the permanent collection of the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, Ariana Muse in Geneva, Switzerland and the Seattle Art Museum among others.
