Michelle Bui

Cling Wrap, 2021


Michelle Bui Cling Wrap, 2021 inkjet print 20 x 14 inches Edition of 12 + 2 APs; signed Unframed

Bringing both a painterly and sculptural approach to her photographic practice, Montreal-based artist Michelle Bui works with an array of everyday, seemingly unremarkable materials to create assemblages for the camera. Removed from their utilitarian contexts, these objects become malleable and amorphous, given new form in Bui’s studio through processes of merging, manipulating, resituating, and image-making. In Cling Wrap, Bui offers a haptic scene, one rendered from flowers, plant matter and other objects sheathed in soft plastics. This work extends from a suite of photographs that will be exhibited on CAG’s façade in spring 2022.
