Still Move is the first monograph to focus on the performance work of artist Brendan Fernandes. For the last five years, Fernandes has explored how stillness and static movement can be powerful tools of resistance. Informed by his training in ballet and modern dance, Fernandes’ practice routinely explores the role of the body within social and political spaces, questioning and breaking down the notion of hegemony. For Fernandes, choreography serves as a remarkable tool for decoding and unpacking this complex conversation. Inspired by ballet movement vocabularies relating to labour and endurance, the work demonstrates the artist’s keen interest in responding to histories of avant-garde dance and its relationship to visual art. His work takes on numerous forms, building on an effort to negotiate a complex sense of both individual and cultural identities within performative acts.


The publication features texts by Hendrik Folkerts, Dittmer Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Art Institute of Chicago and Jess Wilcox, Director of Exhibitions at Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island, New York, with contributions from Christina Cuthbertson, Shaun Dacey, Anik Glaude, Ryan Josey, Robin Metcalfe, Crystal Mowry, and Stuart Reid.”
