Delyn Chow and Emmanuel Crespo present: Transubstantiation, a one night collaborative event at the Daw Yee Myanmar Cafe in Monterey Park. Transubstantiation presents a dialogue between a culinary and visual artist. Both artists will present 8 correlating items produced within their disciplines that explore ideas of transformation and temporality. Chow employs both traditional and modern techniques such as fermentation, preservation, and coagulation to produce culinary works that explore the show's theme. Crespo continues the dialogue through his selective use of symbolic imagery. The resulting show presents an aesthetic experience that engages all your senses.
Delyn Chow is a Burmese born chef and art aficionado. He is the owner and executive chef of Daw Yee Myanmar Café, a newly opened restaurant that specializes in traditional Burmese cuisine. The collaboration between the two artists required Chow to playfully experiment with a variety of ingredients and processes. This experimentation lead to the discovery of unique dishes that playfully spoke about the show’s theme.
! Emmanuel Crespo is a Los Angeles based artist. With the concept of transformation as a constant in his practice, his current body of work employs symbolic imagery that attempts to articulate his mythologies and belief systems that revolve around this idea. He received his BFA and MFA from Otis College of Art and Design and is currently teaching drawing, painting, and sculpture classes at Bishop Alemany High School.
