34-year-old Kriss Munsya is a graphic designer, photographer, and award-winning film maker. Kriss, born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, was raised in Brussels and is now living in Vancouver.
“The Eraser juxtaposes experiences of the past with desires of the future. It is a story of change and transformation that centres a Black man revisiting experiences that have been normalized in critical reflection of internalized supremacy. Things that at the time he thought were normal now have new meaning and he wants to share the lessons within.” – Kriss Munsya
The Pendulum Gallery is free and accessible to the public and its open-concept layout seamlessly lends itself to social distancing guidelines and acts as the perfect backdrop to the art. The artwork can also be viewed online by visiting the artist’s website where he will be posting throughout the duration of the exhibition.
This exhibition is sponsored by HCMA and the Downtown Vancouver BIA.
