Abstract (English)

" Brandoli’s work critiques the dissonance and distortions that occur within spaces of colonial architecture and cultural institutions as they intersect with capitalist and socio-political agendas. Following the 2008 collapse in the economy Brandoli investigated the use of three CPR hotels as opulent historically compressed backdrops for corporate posturing – the Banff Springs Hotel, Chateau Lake Louise and the Royal York in Toronto – where, like Philips’ theory on souvenirs or Broodthaer’s on museums, traditional First Nations cultural signs become conflated with the trappings of haute couture intended for high end Euro-consumption and corporate conference presentation screens occlude an admixture of historical Canadian-ness.
