In this online talk, artists Chloë Lum & Yannick Desranleau will speak with Curator Naomi Potter about their creative practice, and their current exhibition The Garden of a Former House Turned Museum.
Much of the work produced by Chloë Lum & Yannick Desranleau requires active collaboration, not simply with each other, choreographers, musicians, and dancers, but with the objects they produce; objects that perform collectively as costumes, sets, noisemakers, and sculptures. Theirs is a performance- and material-heavy practice informed by their time in the avant-rock group AIDS Wolf—of which they were founding members—and the DIY, scrappy, screen-printed poster work made under the pseudonym, Séripop.
While Lum & Desranleau have not used a stage to perform on for many years, they continue to be interested in the generative potential of this space. By borrowing from a variety of music and dance styles, as well as narrative tropes from theatre, television, and literature, they acknowledge the performative and storytelling capacity of the stage without using one.
