ANNIE TONG ZHOU LAFRANCE, CANADA
Annie Tong Zhou Lafrance is a Chinese-born multidisciplinary artist. She was adopted from Anhui, China in 1999 and is currently based between Tiohtià:ke/Montreal and Quebec City, Canada. In spring 2021, she obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Concordia University with a major in Studio Art and a minor in Chinese Language and Culture. Her current visual research focuses on the different methods of display enabling the transportability of intimate belongings from one location to another. Since 2017, her work has been exhibited on several occasions all over Tiohtià:ke/Montreal, namely at Visual Arts Visuels Gallery, Eastern Block, Rad Hourani Foundation and many alternated spaces. As of 2019, she has begun sharing her narrative in relation to her transnational adoption to raise awareness about transcultural identity and the Chinese Adoptee diaspora in Western territories. Her writings have been published by L’Organe, the Fine Arts Reading Room, and soon by the Concordia Undergraduate Journal of Art History. In the near future, she will be moving to China to bridge the language barrier and pursue graduate studies in Fiber Art.
