Artists An Laurence and Annie Tong Zhou Lafrance, both Chinese adoptees, launch their collaborative zine UP CLOSE detailing their creative processes that led to the creation of their works “Come Closer, I’ll tell you what I forgot” (An Laurence) and “From China, To Canada” (Annie Tong Zhou Lafrance). This project was made possible by the Chinatown Biennial.
UP CLOSE offers a behind-the-scenes look into the creative processes that birthed our artistic works as Chinese adoptees raised in Quebec. How can transracial adoptees reappropriate their stories? Why use artistic creation as a means to search for what’s been lost?
We hope that UP CLOSE can help amplify transracial adoptees’ voices and spark conversations with other Asian diasporic communities.
