Cage is Stage Stage is Cage

DECK 120A Prinsep Street, 187937
10 Feb 2017 - 26 Feb 2017

The origin of Cage is Stage concept dates back to 2007. Danny Yung (the curator) was in Shanghai preparing his Tian Tian Xiang Shang (TTXS) comic exhibition. He came across in a local floral market a traditional Chinese bug box made of red wood. The box is the size of a matchbox. The tiny well-constructed box is used to house small singing bug. Yung was then much inspired by this craft and the concept of how an "artist" captured and performed in such an enclosed cage/stage.
