Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau’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 the duo’s collaboration as well the artists’ exploration of narrative tropes from literature and theatre. Lum and Desranleau have exhibited widely, notably at Or Gallery (Vancouver), the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the University of Texas (Austin), the Blackwood Gallery (Mississauga), and the Darling Foundry (Montréal). Their work can be found in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Montréal Museum of Fine Art, and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
