|Ken Lum, Norgate Mall, 2013|
Lum’s Mini-Mall works build upon ideas of subjectivity and community set forth in his earlier Shopkeeper (2000-2009) series, exhibited last year at Jancou in Geneva. The Shopkeeper series comprises individualized sign-like works for fictitious but plausible urban communities marked by immigration flux and economic turmoil. The Mini-Mall series calls attention to community formation within the parameters of the sign form itself. The works point to the diverse and changing ethnic and economic demographics of the neighborhoods to which they serve.
