Brendan Fernandes' 2016 exhibition Lost Bodies begins with the body as a place of knowing and offers multiple points of connection that draw upon traditional African textiles, costume and masks, gestures of Western ballet, and elegant dance choreographies within the museum vault. With this fresh approach to re-presenting African artifacts, he reconsiders objects from two major collections in a set of new video, print and spatial intercessions. Lost Bodies brings Fernandes' work into dialogue with two distinctive collections of African art: The Justin and Elisabeth Lang Collection of African Art at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario and the collection of the Textile Museum of Canada. Essays by Amanda Jane Graham and Nat Trotman.
