In the exhibition Mutual Surrender, Brendan Fernandes will exhibit sculptural and video installations that examine the notion of his return to his birthplace of Kenya. Through written narrative, appropriated documentary footage, and stereotypical imagery of Africa, the artist explores what he has become after living in Canada (the West) for the past twenty years

Born in Kenya of Indian heritage, Brendan Fernandes immigrated to Canada in the 1990s. He completed the Independent Study Program of the Whitney Museum of American Art (2007) and earned his MFA (2005) from The University of Western Ontario and his BFA (2002) from York University in Canada.
