Vessna Perunovich will be in residency at LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE from May 10, 2022 to June 25, 2022. For this project, Perunovich intends to reflect on her own story of immigration to Canada from the former Yugoslavia in late 1980 by connecting on her personal experiences to current global issues. Her work addresses migration, borders and settlement while considering her experience in a place of feminist practice and motherhood. Thus, the artist will use found objects and second-hand materials. The studio/gallery will be utilized as a space for experimentation and development of different ideas relating to this subject. The work will transform space through an immersive installation that investigates the personal and universal experience of migration as a space of movement and immobility. A presentation of her residency work will take place on June 16, 2022 at 5 p.m.
