ONE HUNDRED MORE / JUSTINE A. CHAMBERS ET LAURIE YOUNG
A physical and public declaration of what it means to resist. As women of colours and mothers, Justine A. Chambers (Vancouver) and Laurie Young (Berlin) take to the stage to explore a wide range of small gestures linked to resistance. In the wake of the Black Lives Matter movements, they shift away from discourse so as to create a reversal of values within the territory of the body. Living a continent apart, the two artists share a fascination for the political, social and physical ramifications of gestures.
