Tegan B’s exhibition, A Quiet Resilience, is a small collection of her photographs from her flâneurs. The works document the ephemeral, disillusioned, and unabashed city she sees through a non-linear narrative exploring her perspective as a woman photographer and as a resident and visitor of walkable and unwalkable cities. Edmonton is notoriously unwalkable: it is a city designed for cars. Streets filled with dead ends and freeways with little to no sidewalks present a unique opportunity to navigate the un-navigable. This is where the worms bleed out of the cracks of sidewalks and the honest, amateur graffiti lives. Through photography the artist is able to memorialize these fleeting moments and chance encounters in the medium of film, lending richness and patience to the work. Tegan B’s work asks the question: What subconscious personality of the city will surface when you let it breathe?
