Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Pepa Chan is an interdisciplinary artist, art educator and musician currently based in St. John's, NL. Her art practice includes site-specific installation, sculpture, printmaking, performance and video to generate difficult questions about society, gender, and violence. During her Elbow Room Residency, Chan produced a series of objects and images confronting a particularly traumatic period of her life that is remembered through the act of getting her hair brushed. This research and work has resulted in the solo exhibition BRUSH, on view through April 14th. Find out more about this research and how a simple communal gesture of care and trust can enact incremental healing, in addition to a view of the artists earlier projects.
