Artists: Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau
Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau are multidisciplinary visual artists based in Montreal, Quebec. Their work focuses on theatricality and the choreographic; in their performance work but also in their interest in staging tableaus and working with ephemeral materials that can be said to perform through re-deployment and decay. The duo's recent works investigate the agency of objects, the material condition of the body, and the transformative potential that bodies and objects exert upon each other. These interests are informed by Lum's experience with chronic illness and its effect on their collaboration as well the duo's exploration of narrative tropes from literature, theatre, and television.
