Biography

Video maker. Lesley Loksi Chan was born in Hamilton. She earned a BFA in Film and Video Production from York University. Her work examines the relation of history and social movements. Using performance, documentation or exploring texture by superimposing images and fibres, Chan's work puts back skepticism into the evidence of the everyday, whether that everyday has a small personal impact or a lasting social influence. In her work, Chan also constructs intricate spaces and temporal fields, asking the viewers to naviguate alongside with her into these new uncommon yet communial zones. Her works have been screened at festivals nationally and internationally including many queer festivals.
