Lucie Draai (b.1979 Bogotá, Colombia) is an artist based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands currently studying at DAI (Dutch Art Institute/NL), a 2 year itinerant MFA program that fosters a variety of praxes at the intersections of art and theory. Her practice proposes a re-thinking or better yet escaping the (social, political) terms of order that surround us. Perceiving the world not in terms of solidity and unity but as ‘viscous’ and ‘porous’. (1) A more-than-human understanding of the future seems necessary and vital 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.
