Description
8 slides documenting Cha's text installation "Faire-Part." "Faire-Part" consists of black press type and black ink on 15 envelopes. The 8 slides document 4 of the envelopes from the front and verso.
The title "Faire-Part" translates to announcement, notification. Words are printed on the envelopes individually or as sentences. Cha manipulates the language through isolating words/ letters, removing from context and reducing words/ language to minimal units. Cha leads the viewer to discover the multiple meanings and layers of language. She is expressing the language and nature of communication.
See museum #1992.4.67/131
The slides were discovered in a tin slide case. Another set of slides documenting Faire-Part were in the case. See museum #1992.4.131.
