Frances Ferdinands: Between Latitudes

September 9 – October 8, 2017

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 14, 7PM


Frances Ferdinands is a Sri Lankan born Canadian visual artist whose exhibition history spans three decades. Her work is usually constructed in thematically-based series, and has always been concerned with social, cultural and political issues. Since 2007 her work has gravitated towards Sri Lankan references, and stories related to her own biography, including migration, references to her hybrid identity and childhood memories of trying to “fit in.”

Much of the work for this solo exhibition emanates from revisiting her homeland of Sri Lanka. There she studied with masters in the field of traditional Sri Lankan fine art and craft that is not widely practised anymore in the country. She states: “My intention was to study these old forms and revitalize them through re-interpretation within a contemporary context.”
