  • the VERY PROMISING opening for Oneness, Shock and Return @ WPA (on 20th and Mass) documents a month long performance in which the artist (Chajana) spent time in the WPA office, uniting her body with the space. After photographing her performance, the images were digitally manipulated to create “photographic sculptures” that will be reinserted into the setting in which they were created. During the May 7th opening, the artist will complete her piece by inviting the audience to eat a life-sized bread sculpture.
