Candy Chang is an American artist whose work uncovers the psychological layers within communities. Her practice includes installations that collect thousands of handwritten reflections from the public, and paintings and videos generated from this material. Testimonies of desire, dread, sorrow, hope, and courage are surfaced in shared spaces that challenge norms of visibility and offer new modes of communion.
