From the organizer:
Tiffany Chung has her third solo exhibition at Tyler Rollins Fine Art,TOMORROW ISN’T HERE (September 6 – October 20, 2012).
TOMORROW ISN’T HERE is part of a new series of multimedia works called The Galápagos Project, which derives from her research on various processes of transformation in towns and cities in several post-industrial countries. The series explores deindustrialization, demographic changes, global economic crises, natural disasters, extreme climate impact and human destruction. The exhibition references the Great Plains and Dust Bowl of the 1930s to epitomize the decline of an extensive flatland region due to natural disaster and human destruction. With the misuse of land, inappropriate agricultural practices, and extreme climate impact, the severe dust storms of the 1930s destroyed 25 million hectares of land and caused hundreds of thousands of people in the Great Plains to migrate West during the Great Depression. The exhibition comprises a series of embroidered charts, works on paper, a sculptural installation, and the US premier of her two most recent video works.
