Gaye Chan has been included in Summercamp's first 2011 program, Starting the Ball Rolling Again, an outdoor group exhibition of artists who re-purpose ideas and translate materials.
Summercamp is a home in the neighborhood of El Sereno, Los Angeles. The homemade modern house, full of pass-throughs and secret spaces, currently functions as an artist live/work space and hosts ProjectProject. Founded by alum Fatima Hoang, Elonda Billera and Janice Gomez in 2009, the space showcases exhibitions, performances, lectures, workshops, screenings and events by activating multiple parts of the property – installing works in the sloping backyard, projecting videos on the living room ceiling, and showcasing musical performances in the old goat pen.
Chan's contribution, entitled Orphan, is a ceramic frog/bear from the unclaimed glazeware shelf to pose the question, “Did it turn out so differently than intended that you fail to recognize it, or was the shock of recognition so horrifying that you simply fled?”
