2454 Agricola St. by Félix Bernier.

Artist Félix Bernier reflects on how redevelopment is changing the character of our city

Using photography, installation, sculpture, and digital technologies, interdisciplinary artist Félix Bernier presents the complex inter-relations of the physical and the digital as sources of interrogation. He completed his master of fine arts at NSCAD University in 2021.

From the artist: “2454 Agricola St. was a response to the boom of urban development in Halifax. It involved re-creating the entrance door of Obsolete Records in its old location, using latex and wood. This project is a meditation on how gentrification pushes lower income families, small businesses, and local communities further away to the outskirts of Halifax.”
