Art Exhibition – Any Day Now

September 7 - October 4

September 7 – October 4
Art Exhibition – Any Day Now
Richmond Cultural Centre – Upper Rotunda Gallery
7700 Minoru Gate
Any Day Now is a site-responsive installation series which explores experiences of displacement, especially in circumstances of renoviction, development, and gentrification. This ongoing project uses drawing and printmaking to document some of the many homes in the Lower Mainland which are sitting empty, waiting to be torn down to make way for development. These houses range from derelict to just recently vacated. Some are unnerving, some charming, some still have children’s toys in the yard, potted plants on the porch, and curtains in the windows. All hold a mysterious magnetic draw. After each house is demolished, its drawing is transformed into a lantern and installed as a memorial on the vacant lot where the house sat, like a miniature, illuminated ghost of the now vanished home. The lantern installations are photographed, creating a growing archive of a rapidly shifting landscape.
