Chloe Lum & Yannick Desranleau - Home
Chlo? Lum and Yannick Desranleau are multidisciplinary visual artists based in Montreal. Their work focuses on the lifespan of material; how material stresses cause fading, scuffing, peeling, crumpling or crushing, and, how these reactions can be said to animate the materials. The duo is equally interested in collaboration, with each other, other artists, and their materials, as both subject matter and research interest. These interests in collaboration and materiality inform their practice in installation, sculpture, photography, dance, print and video wherein objects perform via their decay; to be re-used and re-deployed wearing the traces of past use. They have exhibited widely, recently at The Confederation Center for The Arts Gallery in Charlottetown, P.E.I, and The Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College in Chicago. They where founding members of the avant-rock band AIDS Wolf, and until recently, collaborated under the name Seripop. Yannick Desranleau is currently an MFA candidate in sculpture at Concordia University, while Chlo? Lum holds a BFA in art history and studio art from Concordia University. Their work is collected by the Victoria and Albert Museum and by the Montreal Museum of Fine Art.
