Fuller Rosen Gallery is proud to announce Homesick, a video exhibition featuring work by Reem Al-Wakeal, Wiley + Sabrina (Bingyi) Spurlock, and Amy Chiao.
What reminds you of family; preparing a cherished recipe, a mother’s embrace, a summer road trip?
Through the medium of video, Reem Al-Wakeal, Wiley + Sabrina (Bingyi) Spurlock, and Amy Chiao revisit memories of home to reclaim their contemporary identities. Crafting a beloved breakfast with her mother, Al-Wakeal explores the pressures of assimilating to her new Canadian home in Breakfast in Lebanon. The team of Wiley + Spurlock reviewed and edited over 50 hours of VHS footage in the creation of the video performance HERE IS MY MOM. She’s Dead. In A Western Headed East, Chiao documents the Chiao and Tsai families’ drive across the United States in 2005. A place you’ll always remember but can never go back to, Homesick critically investigates nostalgia by exploring the family histories of each artist.
