SORRY: Recent Works by Jenifer K. Wofford and Christine Wong Yap
April 03, 2008
6:00 to 9:00 pm
Frey Norris Gallery presents “Sorry,” a survey exhibition of several recent series of works by two important emerging Bay Area artists, Jenifer K. Wofford and Christine Wong Yap. “Point of Departure” and “Nurse” by Wofford and text-based works and “Inventions” by Wong Yap will line the gallery’s walls and Wong Yap’s “Presents” will populate the center of the gallery. Both series of Wofford’s work explore and re-interpret an imaginative comic-like narrative centered on Filipina nurses and immigration histories. Wong Yap takes wry aim at blind spots in printed language, conveying optimism and pessimism, using distorted typography and the failures and half truths of illegible words, as well as sculptural stacks of “empty” gifts.
Wofford recently graduated from UC Berkeley and Wong Yap from the California College of the Arts. Wofford is a recent recipient of a “Goldie” from the San Francisco Bay Guardian and a Eureka Fellowship from the Fleishhacker Foundation. Christine Wong Yap is an affiliate artist at the Headlands Center for the Arts and a recipient of a Creative Work Fund for New Work in collaboration with Donna Keiko Ozawa, Bob Hsiang and the Kearny Street Workshop.
