    Artist Rachelle Dang is another one of the Upcoming 2019-2020 A.I.R Fellows! 
Dang, who was brought up in Hawaii, primarily creates installation work that surveys colonial legacies of ecology, violence, labor, and migration, particularly in the Pacific. Her practice centers on reconfiguring objects from the past to critically engage with tensions in the present. The immersive installations she creates address diaspora, loss, and the recuperation of memory, drawing from an awareness of the precariousness of nature and the body. Thus, ceramics have become an essential element of her art-making practice, as, for Dang, the fragility of this medium translates the sensations of vulnerability – that of the environment, the body, and material -- that are central to the themes of her work. 
For "Southern Oceans" (2018), the artist reconstructed “Les Sauvages de la Mer Pacifique,” an 1805 wallpaper by Jean-Gabriel Charvet that depicts colonial voyages to the South Pacific through the Western gaze. Dang reconfigured this wallpaper by collaging and enlarging a series of iPhone photos of the original piece. Set in front of this new piece was a series of sculptures that represented imperial botany, the trade of "exotic" plants, and the commodification of non-western bodies. Through its re-appropriation of colonial imagery, Dang's installation pointed to tactics, such as misrepresentation and the naturalization of fictions, that have been widely used to justify imperial conquests, and have, consequently, manipulated understandings of both the past and the present.

    Travel is one of the best anti-war weapons that there are. I've been to Iran, and if you're there you see little kids, cops, old people, cemeteries. Once you see that, you can't say, 'Oh, Iran, let's bomb them.' — Viggo Mortensen

    "Are you making art like someone’s watching over your shoulders? Judging you and commenting how bad it is?😠👿 I think we need to let that person step away from you. You don’t need that person. How can they know what is “good” and what is “bad” when you’re not even done with the art?! Let that person take a break. Go get a cup of tea. Take a nap. In the meanwhile you can make art like nobody’s watching. It gets really fun that way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Imagine, what would you create if nobody’s watching??🌟 (Because the truth is, nobody IS really watching.) 🙏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    What a fun opening last night! The location of the house this year is amazing, so much foot traffic, right by the Jazz festival yesterday, and the huge art fair next week! If you didn’t get a chance to see Made & Unmade last night, it will be open today until 5 and next weekend on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Wow! The third @moonroomcollective install was a success! So excited to get to work with @naima_white on such amazing art pieces. Huge thanks to @joycedallal and @doris_bittar, who came through with some critical tools and supplies for our install (like professional artists they are!) and who took us to dinner to celebrate (@stacy_greene_art ty for this too!). Joyce and Doris also have an amazing piece up in House 410A, called Wall to Wall, which everyone should go see! And major thanks to @gershomgog for holding down the fort with Z and Lily Roux, this wouldn’t have been possible without you—we missed you! Also tysm to everyone who made it to the opening!! It’s so strange not living in NY and just being able to go to the island whenever I feel like it, so everyone here plz go for me! And take pix of the piece! And share them with ‘#moonroomcollective’ ;)

    I love love love living in NYC. But it’s been so nice taking some weekend trips here and there this summer. Here’s a lil reminder to myself and all of you (because you’re allowed to give yourself breaks!)
