Finding One’s Shadow in Ruins and Rubble

Tiffany Chung’s art focuses on conflict, identity, and urbanization as it transforms through history. The Ford Foundation is going to feature her work alongside other artists in March, which focuses on social injustice and discrimination. What caught my attention, though, was her previous installation entitled “Finding one’s shadow in ruins and rubble” which examines the destruction that occurs in wartime in an photo essay format. This reminded me of the role of spacing, similar to what we saw at the ICA last week with Cecilia Vicuna’s pieces. In contrast to Vicuna’s pieces, Chung created relatively uniform shapes and styles of photos which illuminate the repetition of the long-lasting harms that come as a result of war.
