Cat Lamora is a Korean-Canadian paper artist based in Toronto. Through the fragile and temporary medium of paper, her work strives to preserve the brief liminal space created at the crossroads of diaspora consciousness, memory, culture, and nostalgia, examining how each lived experience constructs the building blocks of identity.

‘The Aberrant’ is a three dimensional paper installation that attempts to address the experience of a gyopo — a term for Korean expatriates who have been citizens in their new countries for longer than a decade. The term itself carries negative connotations as referring to people who, as a result of living outside the motherland, have been severed from their Korean roots.
