Christy Chan's installation of videos contemplates race and power in American culture. As a child growing up in rural Virginia, she translated and responded to harassment letters from the Ku Klux Klan on behalf of her immigrant family. In Who’s Coming to Save You, Chan portrays Klan figures in situations that interrupt their power dynamics.
This installation is part of Sets, three two-week projects of process-based, video and performance work by Bay Area artists Christy Chan, Chris Kallmyer and Olivia Mole.
