The Options That Are Offered To Us: The Least Likely / The Most Tolerable is an immersive installation in two parts, using the architectural elements delimiting the space of the gallery to articulate multiple streams of thought through simple formal play. Using the screen printed poster as matter and for its topographical marker qualities, this work, and much of Yannick Desranleau and Chloe Lum's installation work as Seripop, ignores traditional hanging conventions and tries to articulate the work and the space containing it as one sentence, regardless of its semantics.
