Creative Capital and Moving Image are proud to present the world premiere of Patty Chang’s video work, Invocation for a Wandering Lake, Part 1, at the Moving Image Art Fair in New York (Waterfront New York Tunnel, March 6–9). In Invocation for a Wandering Lake, Part 1, Patty Chang washes the corpse of a dead sperm whale in an act of ablution and mourning. The whale, white from decomposition, brings to mind Moby Dick and a spirit of the end of empire.
