Laurie Kang's exhibition opens tomorrow, April 11th at ESP. We visited her over the weekend during installation to discuss her process and intent. As a photo-based artist, Kang's medium arbitrarily captures a moment in time, however for this exhibition she has bypassed this rule using site-specific installation. Working with a package of he work doesn't exist in one final fixed state, it is reinvented and contextualized through documentation and interpretation, that then becomes an extension of the work itself.enforce meanings on others but rather allows the viewer to remain subjective and open to questioning. By requesting Lucas Soi to write a formal exhibition essay (read here), she allows her intuitive process to be genuine, unhampered by end analysis.
Laurie Kang runs from April 11th - 28th at ESP, 1086 1/2 Queen West, Toronto
