Pagoda / 2022
A towering structure, Pagoda consists of a miniature yellow beeswax pavilion sitting on a stack of readymade wood chip pallets—a delicate combination of contrasting materials that conjures a sacred architectural model. The height of the work entices the viewers to bend slightly in order to see the intricate folds and patterns at the center of the pallets' structure. Exploring the forms, geometry, and laws of materials, Tap Chan aims to incite a potential relationship between the distant universe and ritualistic experiences.
