Lucie Draai (b.1979 Bogotá, Colombia) is an artist based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands currently studying a Master of Fine Art Praxis at the Dutch Art Institute. Her practice proposes a re-thinking or rupturing the (social, political) terms of order that surround us. She perceives the world rather as ‘viscous’ and ‘porous’. (1) than solid or universal. A more-than-human understanding of the present seems necessary and calls for a shift in how we conceptualize being, life, death, and temporality. (2) A proposal for radical hope (3) and radical respect for difference.
