We construct our imagination and identity, to a great extent, based on recorded images and predefined concepts, received labels and fictions that allow us to make quotidian sense of the world. Questioning our received labels and fictions provides an opening where we can access our imagination and identity anew. Coming from different generations, raised in different hemispheres, Lisa Corinne Davis and Maureen Hoon creates works that are different on the surface, yet both artists bend representations of the physical world to a similar purpose. Drawing references from the urban environment, their works allude to materiality, space, image, and affect, and provide access to new ways of seeing and understanding.
