From the gallery:
"More Selections" continues an ongoing series of wearable sculptures constructed from various sauce packets collected from fast food chains, gas stations, and high school cafeterias. This series of sauce-suits were modeled after outfits taken from the closets of close friends of the artist, hand-picked by both the artist and each friend. The outfits were then worn by each of the artist’s friends, who each performed mundane tasks in their own homes and places they frequented day-to-day while wearing them, which was documented through photography.
Evolving from an older series of self-portrait costumes tailored to specifically fit the artist, this new line of work investigates the roles of community, love and relationships in self-portraiture, while also drawing on the connection between consumerist culture and how we craft our individuality and personas through apparel and material.
About the Artist:
Ethan Chan is an artist working in sculpture, installation and performance art based in Los Angeles & San Diego, CA. Using off-kilter materials including Happy Meal toys, bubble gum, and sauce packets, his work examines a love for all things kitsch, cookie-cutter, and plastic; and in its transformation, attempts to place itself at the intersection between globalism and Americana.
