Patricia S. Ward: Re/Vision
January 18, 2012 - March 31, 2012

Rejection, Transformation

Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director

In a site-specific installation titled Re/Vision, Ward will present a replica of her workspace, along with a number of miniature books and book-objects created from shredded pieces of an unpublished novel on loss, nostalgia and war. The installation reflects her journey of moving beyond the experience of rejection, to delving into the themes that permeate her writing, to returning at last to her wartime childhood and incorporating the memorabilia she has carried with her since leaving Lebanon. All objects in the exhibition are meant to be touched and explored, so that viewers can experience more intimately the artist's journey.
