January 2019 Rotunda Exhibition
Lesley Loksi Chan
WHETHER PERMITTING is an ongoing series of felt compositions which the artist began creating in 2017. In this body of work she uses found objects and educational materials used in North American elementary schools to reflect on contemporary issues such as identity formation and processes of knowledge, learning, and decision-making. Though such materials were originally intended to be used by children, the pedagogical tools are re-imagined here as cultural artifacts to address wider concerns.
