Rorrim / 2021
Interested in exploring insomnia and quotidian liminality, Chan uses industrial material to create uncanny sculptural forms that reference domestic space, forming a fantasmatic theatre that works as a heterotopia, a term that describes spaces which are at once real and virtual. One such example of a space is a mirror, which features prominently in Rorrim (2021). Made of the biodegradable polyester polycaprolactone, Rorrim (2021) takes Edogawa Ranpo’s Mirror Hell and Lewis Carrol’s Through the Looking Glass as its references and functions as a portal into unknown dimensions and alternate realities.
