Richmond Art Gallery presents MOTHLIKE/silvery-blue by Ladner-based artist Amy-Claire Huestis. This exhibition is the culmination of years of research and performances along the foreshore of the Fraser River Delta by Huestis and her collaborators. It celebrates our kinship with birds, the interconnectedness of all things, and the importance of ecological areas currently under threat due to human development. Huestis’ exhibition brings our attention specifically to the Key Biodiversity Area of (Hwlhits’um) (Brunswick Point in Ladner), an area of critical ecological importance for migratory birds within the Fraser River Estuary, on the ancestral and present-day lands of the Coast Salish Peoples. Acting as a rich framework for communal connection with nature, MOTHLIKE/silvery-blue features artworks, costumes, bird-friendly window treatments, live footage of a barn owl nest box from Richmond Park’s Nest Box Program, children’s storytelling gatherings, collaborations with artists, and presentations by conservationists and scientists.
