Right Window presents Latent, titled after a new sculpture by Takming Chuang that spans diagonally across the exhibition space. Coiled and folded forms rest on a modular structure of interconnected shelves. Made of wet clay wrapped in plastic, they will eventually shrink, wrinkle, dry and harden. In the foreground beside the window, a frame with an embedded photograph of deli meat demonstrates the mutable nature of the material after it has been fully cured. Relating to the body, Chuang takes an interest in the double meaning of “curing,” as relief and as preservation.
