Synopsis

In Ordinary Shadows, Chinese Shade, Wong uses his second-generation Chinese-Canadian perspective to frame the Chinese experience in Canada and in China. Through his own family network and several trips to the People's Republic of China, the artist gained access to the everyday, non-exotic world of his family homeland. A picture emerges of displaced cultures and traditions in transition.
