With this collaboration, two artists of Chinese descent pay tribute to the early 20th-century Cuban Chinese painter Wilfredo Lam, who fused elements of Cubism and Surrealism with Afro-Cuban culture in his paintings, sculptures, and ceramic works. In this combined installation, Rachelle Dang and Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow show works that incorporate landscape, history and fantasy – relying on their respective cultural backgrounds and experiences for tactile and visual inspiration.
