For their sophomore exhibition at Galerie Hugues Charbonneau, Séripop – the collaborative practice of Chloe Lum and Yannick Desranleau – will be exhibiting a new presentation of multi-disciplinary work. Known for their large scale sculptural installations constructed of brightly coloured – sometimes printed – paper materials, theThe Face Stayed East and the Mouth Went West (elements) exhibition distinguishes itself by referencing that sculptural work and its concepts through photo-based installation and performance.

In the last several years Séripop’s practice has explored the entropy of urban space. Their work occasionally engages directly with public architecture and objects (i.e. an entire building is papered and peels away over time in Avancez en arrière(2012)) and their sculptural installations are loosely reminiscent of the shapes and spaces that surround us in the public environment – buildings, construction sites, monuments – slowly shifting and collapsing with gravity and wear during the exhibition period.

At Galerie Hugues Charbonneau, Séripop is exhibiting a series of large scale photographs, presented in light boxes, depicting existing sculptural works in repetition. Through these reproductions the objects are pushed to perform in new and different ways, against their own repeated selves and in the gallery space. Séripop then takes this dynamic a step further, collaborating for the first time with dancers to present a choreographed performance. Séripop’s misshapen objects are activated as props, costumes, and noise-makers, while being manipulated and navigated by the performers. As core members of the now defunct band AIDS Wolf, this overt performance work is new in form but not in nature for Séripop.
