Accompanying the first solo exhibition in Europe by Canadian artist Lotus Laurie Kang, In Cascades brings together original and poignant material, including two never-before-seen photographic series; concrete poetry by the award-winning CAConrad; an insightful and personal interview with Kang conducted by CAConrad; and an essay by Estelle Hoy, writer and author of Pisti, 80 Rue de Belleville (After 8 Books, 2020).
These contributions feature alongside original texts by the exhibition’s curator Amy Jones and Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive’s Senior Curator Victoria Sung, as well as a foreword co-authored by Zoé Whitley, Director of Chisenhale Gallery, London, and Matthew Hyland, Executive Director of Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver.
From genetics and family migrations to memory-conjuring foods, In Cascades is a testament to the political and emotional forces that shape a single person.
