About the Artists:
Kyla Bourgh is a Vancouver-based artist who grew up in the interior of British Columbia. She received an MFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2020, a BEd at The University of British Columbia in 2001 and a BFA at Okanagan University in 2000. Her practice encompasses curating, social engagement, writing and text-based practices. She has been teaching since 2002 and has exhibited nationally and internationally.
Chad Wong is a second-generation Canadian whose family immigrated to Richmond from Hong Kong. Since the 90s there has been a steady stream of Chinese newcomers to the Lower Mainland, initially from Hong Kong and now more predominantly from Mainland China. This body of work explores the fading signs and symbols of Hong Kongese/Cantonese Chinese-Canadian cultural urbanscapes of both Richmond and Vancouver. The uniqueness of these malls and restaurants which have been a visible icon in the Lower Mainland exists in their blend of Eastern and Western influences. As these spaces now slowly disappear the artist views them as the last vestige of his connection to Hong Kong. He felt an urgency to document and preserve these Chinese-Canadian sites that are on the precipice of gentrification as demographics shift. Sited at Aberdeen station, this location is a titular space for Chinese-Canadian businesses and cultural manifestation.
Adriele Au is an emerging artist interested in exploring what home is and its meaning. Using non-traditional art materials like building materials or found objects, her works carry the themes of domesticity, memory, place, and emotions. Methods of repetition are employed to signify these themes.
