Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau

Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau are interested in actions applied to materials, in how displacement, abrasion, peeling, grinding, and discoloration create performative gestures. Their performances with dancers are based on these gestures and on their own movements as they handle objects in the exhibition space. They explore bodies as material objects and material objects as performing bodies. 


Lum holds an MFA at York University in Toronto. Desranleau holds an MFA in sculpture from Concordia University in Montreal and was the recipient of the prestigious Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in 2016. The artist duo used to produce posters series under the name Seripop. They are represented by Galerie Hugues Charbonneau in Montreal.
