Bridget fairbank makes pottery, installation art, and orchestrates happenings- all of which aim for the re-imagining of everyday actions and relations. The handcrafted object is now the subversive object. Her utilitarian items act sometimes as objects of irony, sometimes as objects of intimacy and sometimes as a means to an educational end. A revolution is cooking in the kiln.
Digital Carnival : F I R E !
Prepare to discover new worlds and encounter the unexpected through a series of avant-garde installations in the heart of Richmond! Transforming shipping containers into pop-up galleries, Digital Carnival offers a unique perspective on the complex relationship between art, nature and technology, while contemplating what it means to live in a port city.
With FIRE as the central theme, this year’s exhibition reflects upon the growing intensity of BC forest fires in recent years, the broader environmental concerns it signals, as well as personal and collective strategies for building resilience.
The exhibition includes the Featured Artist Programme and Exhibiting Artists Programme, and showcases the works of a group of dynamic emerging national and international artists: Bagua Artist Association, John Desnoyers-Stewart, Nicole Dextras, Bridget Fairbank, Yang Guo, Melany Nugent-Noble and Trent Noble, Jasmine Sanchez-Ziller, Roberto Santaguida and Paige Smith. Featuring a combination of interactive installations, immersive video projections, virtual reality experiences, and more, Digital Carnival is a multimedia extravaganza suitable for all ages!
Presented by Cinevolution Media Arts Society in partnership with Richmond World Festival.
