Cecile Chong will create a large scale, multi-media installation entitled, "Straingers" for Main Window fall, 2019. "The word “Strainger” is a play-on-words between a stranger and a strainer. In this “Strainger Series” of mask-like sculptures, the beaded image of the “guagua” (Quechua word for baby) covers most of the surface of a kitchen strainer. The straingers themselves suggest the act of separation, liquid from solid, interior from exterior, insider from outsider, the exotic from the mundane.
