Liminal : Lucie Chan and Jerome Havre (Paperback) (Lucie Chan & Jerome Havre)
About this item
As the world experiences an ever-increasing shift in populations for reasons ranging from economic and geopolitical to cultural and social, a disputed concept of national identity has become symptomatic of our times. Here, two artists from very different backgrounds employ immersive multi-media installations to explore the transient nature of communities and territories in an era of fluid cultural identity. Informed by interviews with individuals from diverse immigrant communities Lucie Chan uses portraiture as a record of the encounters, and her oversized digital prints and watercolors reveal stories that explore the nature of shape-shifting identities in a globalized world. In work that makes use of multi-sensorial stimuli, Jerome Havre brings to light relationships between the body, representation and otherness that challenge the ways in which we perceive our surroundings through the breaking of boundaries. Presented together, these works create a space of ambivalence, working to displace the fixity of meaning and structures of power and knowledge. Each artist encourages the viewer to experience the challenges that arise from an acute sense of difference, in order to find new ways of addressing cultural representation.
