Horatio Hung-Yan Law, "T'ai Chi for 1,000"
As part of the South Waterfront's Artist in Residence program
, Horatio Hung-Yan Law presents China-on-Willamette
. The project, which was exhibited for the month of May, consists of two installations, Chopsticks Terrace Rice Field
and Bamboo Great Wall
. With these installations, Law has sought to explore how Portland might have developed if the Chinese population hadn't been driven out by the anti-immigrations laws passed by Congress in 1882. The project culminates this weekend with a final installation, T'ai Chi for 1,000
. This is a rain or shine participation event for people of all ages and levels of T'ai Chi experience - wear comfortable clothing and shoes!
Closing event • 10-11:30am • May 31
South Waterfront Park
• SW Moody & Curry
Law is one hell of an artist and the SoWa does feel a lil like China with the tram and glass tower condos... last weekend I went down there and tried to be a touist in my own city... it definitely felt like a different place.
Still, if this were China 1000 people wouldn't raise any eyebrows. It's a question of scale.
