Yannick Desranleau & Chloe Lum (Séripop): Vexations at Access Gallery, Vancouver

MKOS

In Vexations, Yannick Desranleau and Chloe Lum consider the space and surfaces of the gallery as a receptacle for a visual response – a vessel that will be both present and formless in the support of a resulting “sentence” that will be uttered. Through the manipulation of coloured paper against other materials, Desranleau and Lum’s sculptures react to both planes and void, to create tension between volume and flatness, mass and fragility, material stress and failure, and inertia.

As Seripop, Desranleau and Lum create immersive installations and freestanding works that articulate themselves with the physical space they inhabit. In these works they associate a number of objects through various strategies and mise-en-scènes, privileging a sustained state of instability portrayed through entropic systems. These systems, revealed through active decay, accumulation, ephemerality or other stresses, give agency to the objects and their architectural frame; as they react in function of the performing nature of the settling matter, their interaction with these elements thus becomes a collaborative one
