这系列家庭肖像不同于以往的常规肖像。通过互联网将新加坡的影像传输到其它国家的亲人所
在空间中,然后用投影仪放大,这些国家的亲人突破时间和空间与在新加坡的家人完成了合
照。
艺术家在新加坡出身,在其它国家生活工作,与家人两地分居,因此现今普遍存在的,与家人
分隔千里的人群情况有着切身体会。最终他希望将这个时代的这个特征记录下来。人们,突破
时间和空间相聚,虽然这有些怪诞,但却富有感染力。
汪春龙在中国的代理商是北京艺门画廊,同时他将在2013年初于新加坡博物馆开展自己的个展。

Being Together, 2010 – 2012
In this series, webcam was used to do live recording of families in Singapore. The
recording was then transmitted via skype to countries where the main sitters are
located and projected onto their living space. This is how families, dis(membered)
through time and space, can be re(membered) and made whole again through the use
of a third space, a site that is able to reassemble them together within the
photographic space that we call a family portrait.
Drawing upon my own experiences of being separated from my family as a New York-
based Singaporean, this work documents and examines our condition of new-wave
diaspora – Singaporean families of various races and ethnicities grappling with
the same predicament of separation through time and space.
I also want this project to document and interpret a contemporary social-
historical blueprint as it happens, allowing the future generations to reflect on
it.
In addition, this is also an extension of one of the recurring theme of my works:
the fascination with the expressions of time and space and how we negotiate our
human existences within these two dimensions. this work specifically addresses the
phenomenon of differing time zones, the different dimensions of our human
representations, and how we can finally coexist, albeit in pixilated and two-
dimensional forms.
 
John Clang is represented by Pekin Fine Arts and  is preparing for his solo show at
the National Museum of Singapore in early 2013.
