The exhibition Bullet Through Glass is composed of paintings, sculptures, and site-specific interventions by Thomas Fougeirol and Jo-ey Tang. The 1962 photograph, Bullet Through Glass, by Harold Edgerton has been chosen by the artists as both the exhibition’s title and its locus point.

Jo-ey Tang is a Hong Kong-born American artist, curator, and writer living and working between Paris and Nice. He was a curator at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2014-2015) and art editor of n+1 (2009-2014). He is currently a research resident at Villa Arson, Nice. Tang shifts originary forms over time in his work, using the movements between media – in sound, speech, text, image, objects, and surface-based works – to form new material and technological genealogies. His work negotiates physical being with philosophical and spiritual ideas about life and death. Often, he uses his previous exhibitions and curatorial projects as source material. In Artforum, Phil Taylor describes the works of Jo-ey Tang as “encoded pictures borne of the moment of an encounter,” and notes that his “artifacts of sociability suggest the rituals of consumption

that assuage and mediate anxious interactions…(and) suffuses the exhibition with a sense of longing that’s leavened by potential.” Tang is the founder of curatorial projects The Notary Public and Ring The Clock, and a frequent contributor to Artforum, Flash Art, and LEAP. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from San Francisco Art Institute, and Master of Fine Arts from New York University. Upcoming solo exhibitions include Komplot, Brussels; Arrow Factory, Beijing; and Interim, Oakland. Solo and two-person exhibitions include Galerie Joseph Tang, Paris; Galerie Nathalie Obadia, Paris; Porcino, Chert, Berlin; Taylor Macklin, Zurich in Galveston; and Exile, Berlin. His work has been included in exhibitions at Institut d’Art Contemporain IAC —Villeurbanne/Rhône-Alpes, FR; Occidental Temporary, Villejuif, FR;

Soloway, Brooklyn; and The Suburban, Oak Park. He has curated or organized exhibitions and projects at Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Praz-Delavallade, Paris; Rupert, Vilnius, LT; chi K11 Art Museum, Shanghai; and FUTURA Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague.
