ACT Lecture | Elvan Zabunyan: Theresa Hak Yung Cha, Translations of Memory
Elvan Zabunyan’s talk is first the work of Korean-born American novelist and artist Theresa Hak Kyung Cha. In 1980, having left her native Korea seventeen years earlier, Cha returned to work on a film project she described as “memory [that] materializes directly on the screen.” Cha was fluent in English, French, and Korean and worked with words as images and with images as words, using the structure of language and translation to create a multiplicity of narratives in time, space, and memory.
