Visiting Artist Talk: Chloë Lum and Yannick DesranleauFebruary 26, 2020
Join us for an artist talk with current Fine Arts Department at Mount Allison University, Sunco Artists-in-Residence, Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau.
Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau are multidisciplinary visual artists based in Montreal, Canada. 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 Chloë’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.
This talk is part of the Visiting Artists Program organized by the Owens Art Gallery, Mount Allison University’s Department of Fine Arts and Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre.
