Patty Chang: Que Sera Sera

October 1, 2020 - November 6, 2020

Viewed from below, porcelain bowls held up by untreated wooden boards create a stepped line descending from the upper right corner of the photograph to the bottom left. Large green leaves fill the upper left corner and bottom right. The sky in the background is blue that fades to white in the lower right corner.

If I had it to do over again, I would assign other stages of mourning to the scripted five steps of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Perhaps the leap between depression and acceptance seemed too big a gulf to bridge. Between them, I would add in no fixed order: repositioning, integrating, shapeshifting, imagination, enchantment, trance, transmogrification, invocation, mystification, and bewilderment. When the time comes, because I am sure it will, I’ll test them out, and let you know how it goes.


Patty Chang, Que Sera Sera is a two-venue exhibition exploring loss and the visual expressions that emerge in its wake. The photographs and films on view, made between 2001 and 2017, trace our ties to home and homelands, grasping for those we love, whether they inhabit this world or the next.
