exileé and temps morts: selected works

Exileé and Temps Morts: Selected WorksConstance Lewallen first gave us the retrospective exhibition of Cha’s visual works in 2001, The Dream of the Audience: Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-1982), and now with this collection of previously published and unpublished texts she brings us even more of Cha’s works to be thoroughly engaged by. These writings bring into light other dimensions of Cha previously unseen. As one reviewer noted “there is also snarky humor, pop-cultural observation, and an (almost) unveiled eroticism.” There is a palpable sense that our collective impressions of Cha is getting a thorough makeover. I also love Ed Park’s essay and its title “This is the writing you’ve been waiting for,” which comes from Cha’s journal entry. Her declaration evidences her enormous strength and confidence in herself as an artist.
