"Chloé Quenum has a particular interest in transmission media, such as textiles. To her, the textile is a living object and a testimony of cultural overlays and invasions, political and economic ambitions. “For example dye and tools can relate to the exchange of graphic systems and techniques caused by the displacement of civilizations.”

In recent years Chloé Quenum has worked with the notion of ‘origin’ as multiple, varied and itinerant. Cultural crossings are at the heart of her research which utilises testimonials and collections of objects and iconographic elements. “My practice is not formally systematic and can include several media, techniques and materials - but it is always about telling stories.”
