After Spirit: Channara Tom “Philly” Pheap, is an altar composed of offerings accumulated from family, friends and community members over the course of 1111 days. A place created for his loved ones to reclaim Channara’s memory after he was murdered by the Knoxville Police Department. The gallery features a series of interviews, framed photographs and public shrines that invites others who have lost their own to state violence to also share with the public and learn about his story.
