Mercy Mercy Me

Pendulum Gallery, Vancouver, BC - To Sep 16

by Robin Laurence

Taking its title from Marvin Gaye’s 1971 hit song – and alluding to a time when the environmental movement gained huge momentum – this group exhibition embraces the ecological idea of the interconnectedness of all things. Bettina Matzkuhn, Brian Howell, David Ellingsen, Jean MacRae, Kristin Man and Marcus Bowcott work across a range of media, with a focus on climate change and its complexities. At the same time, they query the role art might play in raising public consciousness and spurring action.
