Although Jesse Chun’s “Name Against the Same Sound” at Baxter Street at the Camera Club of New York revolves around the artist’s investigations into the mechanics of learning a language, namely English, one would be missing the point if one were to read the works solely through this premise. More importantly, Chun’s interdisciplinary exhibition delves into language as form, sound, writing and a process of subjugation in the context of a non-native speaker assimilating to a culture.
