Tango turns her attention to the impact of light on our minds and hearts.
There is no one like Hiromi Tango. Her practice is an explosion of colour and texture — neon lights, plaited wool, knitted shapes, creatively-crafted flowers and much more. An exhibition of her work is like wandering through a garden of extraterrestrial delights.
Fluorescence at Sullivan+Strumpf will see Tango delve into intergenerational relationships. Observing the deteriorating energy and passion of her father, she explores the literal and metaphorical potential of fluorescence and how it can affect our brains and emotions.
Tango has a longstanding fascination with neuroscience. In thinking through light as a medical tool and the illumination of brain structures, she is interested in reclaiming a space for uncertainty — opening up the cracks between scientific data in order to investigate something more sensory and emotional.
