The Queer Mummer

Exhibition by Lucas Morneau, April 8-June 10, 2022

Using photography, fibre art, performance, video, installation, printmaking, and sculpture, Lucas Morneau’s work is autobiographical and based in social activism. Through the alter-ego The Queer Mummer, they deconstruct gender norms and challenge homophobic and heteronormative attitudes still prevalent in Western society.
