Lotus L. Kang

Greater Toronto Art 2024

Lotus L. Kang (b. Toronto, Ontario) works with sculpture, photography, and site-responsive installation. Known for sprawling installations and a distinctive material repertoire, Kang’s practice is a dialogue with the impermanent and the in-between. Elegantly disordered and richly layered, her site-sensitive works explore the relational bonds between time, personal history, and cultural knowledge. Rather than taking a prescriptive or reiterative approach, her practice is one of regurgitation. She seeks to disrupt a human-centred perspective of the world with a broad curiosity for life and matter. Kang holds a Master of Fine Arts from the Milton Avery School of the Arts at Bard College. Her work has been exhibited at Chisenhale Gallery (London), Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver), Deborah Schamoni (Munich), Franz Kaka (Toronto), Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Hessel Museum of Art (Annandale-on-Hudson), Mercer Union (Toronto), New Museum (New York), Sculpture Center (New York), Remai Modern (Saskatoon), Oakville Galleries, and Cue Art Foundation (New York). Kang lives and works in Brooklyn.

For GTA24, Kang’s new site-specific sculptural installation commissioned for GTA24 takes the form of a 13-foot greenhouse. Within the greenhouse, the artist will gather a variety of material objects including lotus shells, cast elements in aluminum, tatami mattresses, and elements made of silicone and fabric, creating a somber space for reflection. | lotuslkang
