Castling: A journey into folklore

Castling: A journey into folklore

Artist and friend of Escape, Tammy Lu, recently got in touch with regards to her latest project, titled ‘Castling’.

The exhibition explores the visual folklore of people who find themselves between multiple cultures. Asking a number of questions such as “what does this experience look like?” and “what is the influence of the surrounding environment on the formation of self?” she delves into the answers using the historical background of Saskatchewan (Canada) and it's relationship to central Europe as subject matter. Specifically, the project draws on the urban imagery of Saskatoon and Fiľakovo and highlights translation, transformation and distortion to represent the immigrant experience.

Tammy Lu drafted in some help from Escape Studios during the process; we were able to access a freelancer for her as well as assist with organising her production and if you have ten minutes we highly recommend checking out the project page here, it’s pretty awesome!
