Lotus Laurie Kang: In Cascades



ISBN: 9780903696616 Category:


Canadian artist Lotus Laurie Kang’s first book delves into the political and emotional forces at play in her installations and photography.

Lotus Laurie Kang’s In Cascades is created to accompany her exhibition at Chisenhale Gallery, London, bringing together two never-before-seen photographic series; concrete poetry by the award-winning CAConrad; an insightful interview with Kang conducted by CAConrad; and an essay by writer Estelle Hoy.

These contributions feature alongside a foreword by Zoé Whitley, Director of Chisenhale Gallery, and Matthew Hyland, Executive Director of CAG, Vancouver, with essays by Amy Jones, the exhibition’s curator, and Victoria Sung, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive’s Senior Curator.

‘Working across sculpture, photography, installation and drawing, the artist uses her acute sensitivity to process and site to reflect on bodies, identities, memories, and histories.’ – E-Flux

‘Kang’s visceral works begin with the permeability and vulnerability of bodies, identities and personal histories, states of flux echoed in the artist’s use of unstable and persistently sensitive materials.’ – FAD Magazine

‘The organic, carnal feel to the work makes sense. Kang, an identical twin who works in photography, sculpture and installation, is clearly interested in the ever-morphing human body and issues of identity… [Kang’s] work morphs with the day’s light, moving between opacity and translucence, at times monochromatic and other times featuring bleeding color blocks, like a Rothko painting.’ – LA Times on Kong’s 2022 artist-in-residence project at Horizon Art Foundation
