Cyrus Tang’s work investigates themes of memory and nostalgia, loss and dislocation, domesticity and interiority. Using a range of materials – from ceramics and model making to photography and video installation – Tang transforms deeply personal concerns into evocative, poetic forms.

Tang writes ‘I investigate the idea of capturing the disappearance of memory… These art projects outline my effort to construct an imaginary space which is made up of my distorted childhood memories and fantasies of homeland.’

Born in Hong Kong, Cyrus Tang moved to Australia in 2003, and is currently based in Melbourne. She graduated from a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2004, and a Master of Fine Arts (Research) at Monash University. Tang has exhibited at numerous group exhibitions locally, as well as participating in a number of international residency programs, including international Workshop of Ceramic Art in Tokoname, Japan in 2005; The Banff Centre, Canada in 2008; and Cite International de Arts, Paris in 2009. She is the recipient of the New Work (Emerging) Grant 2009 of Australia Council for the Arts, George Mora Foundation Fellowship 2008, Theodor Urback Encouragement Award 2004, and the National Gallery of Victoria – Trustee Award 2003.
