Exploring archival materials such as photographs and tourist publications, Andrea Chung reconstructs new narratives to sell romantic notions about nature and labor. Through painting and sculpture, new stories are juxtaposed against old stories to reveal conflicting narratives. By manipulating tourism imagery, she investigates how “The Land” has been sold through picturesque fantasy and fantastic copy that make the viewer question what is real. During her residency, Chung will focus her time on the island of Mauritius, located in the Indian Ocean, to develop a body of work using raw materials such as sugar to tell the island’s complex history. Chung received her BFA from Parsons School of Design and her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Chung has exhibited her work throughout the United States and has been a recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship.
