Chor Leng's interest in the dynamics of art and public space are central to her work and are manifested through site-specific land art installations and large-scale interactive public sculptures. She creates active spaces where the environment and audience interact and reveal the social dynamics of art in the public domain. Often using the materials of contemporary architecture: stainless steel, plywood and acrylic, she constructs her interactive works with using an aesthetic preference and a type of camouflage in the urban environment.
Her land works are site specific, frequently involving the excavation and transplantation of earth in order to draw attention to issues of ownership and the environment and our ephemeral existence upon it's surface. Both of these modalities, the interactive sculptural interventions in public space and the thoughtful and visceral investigations with the elemental materials of soil and water are meditations used to reveal hidden paradigms that animate and permeate those spaces and places where we dwell. In adapting the artwork to the specific qualities of the urban cityscape/landscape and the people who inhabit them, Chor Leng lures us into a unique interaction that underscores the theory that art can exist and function anywhere and everywhere.
