Description
A color slide of Cha standing before her work "Repetitive Pattern." "Repetitive Pattern" consists of 60 different size white strips of cloth sewn horizontally to a piece of white cloth. Stenciled in black ink individually on the strips of cloth are the following words: "Repetitive", "Pattern", "one", "an", "other", "-", "=" and half circle. The words are repeated in four columns. In the slide Cha stands before a "Repetitive" "Pattern" column. Another woman stands behind Cha, face unseen. As if Cha is herself repeating.
In "Repetitive Pattern" Cha is transforming language through manipulation, repetition and reducing the words to units. See museum# 1992.4.59. The slide was discovered in a tin slide case.
