Public outdoor work. Accessible at all times.
Referencing the Rail Corridor as a place of passage between the constructed world and unkempt wilderness, Moonlight transports us deep into a sublime and timeless territory.
A cast bronze sculpture that embodies the fossilised remains of terrestrial vegetation. During the day, the sculpture is a sublimation of a burnt log, its digitally-modified body appearing as a mirage amidst the landscape of Wessex Estate. At night, the sculpture recedes into the shadowy vegetation surrounds. Encounters with this peculiar object along the clearing is quite like traversing the boundary between imaginative form and objective reality.
Dealing in an adventurous vocabulary of matter, Ang’s work toes the line between the sublime and transcendental. This delicate balance and the elemental nature of her work echoes the spontaneous, dream-like quality travel undertaken along the lush and uncultivated Rail Corridor.
About the Artist
