Exhibition – Brendan Fernandes – The Left Space

April 2, 2021 - September 1, 2021

Ongoing – September 1
Exhibition – Brendan Fernandes – The Left Space
Lansdowne Skytrain Station
Co-presented by Richmond Art Gallery, Richmond Public Art, and Capture Photography Festival in partnership with Canada Line Public Art Program – InTransit BC. Brendan Fernandes uses historically significant patterns to tell stories of power and resistance. Evoking a sense of urgency and emergency, “dazzle” patterns, which were painted on warships to confuse the enemy, are coupled with purple and magenta plaid, which at once symbolizes British colonial rule in Kenya, a warning to predators in the wild, and the flashing of police lights. Fernandes playfully wraps this symbolic print across Lansdowne Station. The gesture offers a moment to contemplate solidarity, resiliency, protection, and care during these trying times.
