Opening Reception for Derek Chan's exhibition Mending the World Through a Dream

Derek Chan presents an installation of painting and video in the CCA Cinematheque gallery. Referencing mythological explanations of natural phenomenon, Chan focuses on the relationships of dreams, celestial cycles, and the movement of tectonic plates in his paintings. As an accompaniment to the 2-D works, his video piece offers a narrative understanding to the installation and a ‘warning’ for viewers to take away.
