JaneChangMiAdjunct Positions presents “Jane Chang Mi: The Taste of Purity,” a series of video and photographic works developed during Mi’s visits to the archipelagos of French Polynesia and to the wilderness of Antarctica.

See image: Jane Chang Mi, Le Goût de la Pureté (The Taste of Purity), 2014, archival inkjet print, 32″ x 48″

Through this work, Mi transports the viewer to a place which is represented literally as itself, and poetically, as something accessible trans-context. The work suggests simultaneously the sociopolitical undercurrents of these places and their visitors, the immediacy of new experiences, and the universality of natural phenomena as they are observed during travel.

On view: August 14 – September 12, 2015
