Momenta Art 359 Bedford Avenue, between S. 4th and S. 5th, 718-218-8058, March 17 – March 27, 2011
Opening: Sunday, March 20, 3 – 5 PM
Momenta Art is pleased to present a new video installation by Patty Chang on view from March 17- March 27, 2011. Patty Chang examines the psychic and physical spaces of labor and production. By juxtaposing images of workers peacefully sleeping or resting in the spaces where they work, Chang explores how a space, specifically the workplace, is affected by the energy present. This exploration serves as a kind of refusal of production through not working and maybe even dreaming. This work also highlights the potential danger inherent in equating production with progress and self worth.
