Chloe Lum and Yannick Desranleau are based in Montréal. They are interested in entropy, performative materials, architecture of contingency, labour, haptic perception, diagrammatical relationships, domino narratives, material historicity, collaborative entities, and humans; they set theatrical situations according to those themes. They have exhibited internationally, notably at the University of Texas at Austin (2015), the Center for Books and Paper Arts (Columbia College Chicago, 2015), Confederation Centre Art Gallery (Charlottetown, 2014), YYZ artists’ outlet (Toronto, 2013), the Blackwood Gallery (University of Toronto, 2012), Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal (Québec Triennial 2011), Kunsthalle Wien (Vienna, Austria, 2010), BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art (Gateshead, England, 2009), and Whitechapel Project Space (London, England, 2007). Their collaborative work is in several collections, notably the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Lum and Desranleau have been also active as musicians, touring internationally with the experimental rock band AIDS Wolf, and producing a series of award-winning concert posters under the monicker Seripop.
They are represented by Galerie Hugues Charbonneau.
