1 June - 30 July
Chisenhale Gallery presents a major new commission and first solo exhibition in Europe by Lotus Laurie Kang.
Rooted in an enduring concern with the body and the forces that shape it—political, affective and otherwise—Kang references biology, feminist theory and science fiction to stage richly layered, site-sensitive installations. Unfolding across drawing, sculpture and installation, swarms of fermentation vessels and scattered casts of vegetal matter might be found nestled under flex-track walls, skinned with swathes of unfixed, continuously developing photo paper and film.
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.
The gallery is 15 minutes walk from Mile End station and 19 from Bethnal Green station.
Buses: The 277 and 425 stop on Grove Road, the 8 stops on Roman Road, all at short distance.
