Presented as a choreographic mini-opera, Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau’s What Do Stones Smell Like in the Forest? is a sprawling two-channel video installation that stages a conversation about illness, pain, and what it means to become inanimate. Alongside the installation, the Montreal-based collaborative duo is holding a workshop as well as a performance and reading, both centred around the relationship between the animate and the inanimate.

Inanimate Collaborations: A Workshop with Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau, will be held Thursday, February 14, 7:00–9:00pm. This workshop will explore movement/performance strategies from the relationships between human beings and inanimate objects—both pragmatic and fantastical.

The Loud Object Readings and Becoming Unreal performed by Xuan Ye will be held Saturday, February 23, 5:00-7:00pm to celebrate the close of the exhibition.
