Hana Amani
The Abyss

Since moving to our new location at 3642 Commercial Street, Equinox has been working on a series of special projects with emerging artists and curators. For our first collaboration, we’re delighted to present an installation of works in our side gallery and online viewing room by Hana Amani.
Hana Amani is a Sri Lankan born visual artist, future folklorist, and emerging curator based in Vancouver. She graduated from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2019 with a BFA in Visual Communication, Design and Printmaking.
Amani’s work focuses primarily on the politics, taboos, and identities of women of Asian-Islamic descent. Her trilogy of etchings, Scheherazade’s Dream, that analyze a trio of mythological women in Abrahamic texts through the lens of sexuality, identity, and gender politics was recently featured in The Capilano Review.

Viewing Room: Philippe Raphanel

Over the past two decades, Philippe Raphanel has been drawing from the language of abstraction to develop a distinct vocabulary to explore landscape. Based on a rigorous studio practice, Raphanel uses the four basic elements of painting. – colour, surface, composition, support – to create works that reflect the mutability of the natural world. Equinox is pleased to present five new works from the artist.
