"Roseless"

“Roseless” was the first ever solo exhibition of the provocative photography of the elusive Rose Tang, taking place on Yongkang Road during the weeks of closing ceremonies of the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. After a festive inauguration on the street by Latvian President Valdis Zatlers and an introduction from curator Zane Mellupe on the evening of October 20th in the warm autumn air, attendees of the reception entered “Roseless” and were transported from the overwhelming circus of Expo aggrandizement to the silently intimate portraits and cityscapes of Rose Tang, all edited to make time periods and lifetimes converge through understated, unobtrusive software techniques.

“Roseless” and the work of Rose Tang is a study of the anonymous.

Rose Tang understands that the unknown facets of a subject’s life are as necessary to a portrait as shading and perspective. Shadowed pasts are not illuminated but, through her black and white images of gritty interiors and decaying emotional landscapes or passing family histories, simply referred to with compassionately given space. As Rose Tang’s body of work continues to grow, the shadows appearing in each frame begin to join through a collective culture that exists both in the artworks and outside in real-world China to portray the author, subject and country in their overall complexity.

Rose Tang is one of the main pillars of the Liu Dao Art Collective.
