Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre
21 Queen St
Kingston, Ontario
January 11 - February 22 2014



Inspired by the Haudenosaunee creation teaching of Sky Woman who fell from Sky World to land on the turtle's back, clouds suggest creation, creativity and community to me. Initially designed on a digital platform, the clouds reflect chaos or order, as the thousands of oval forms come together or break apart in ordered rows. The threads reflect the light, extending from ceiling to floor to highlight the connection between earth and sky.

C'est notre histoire

Collection des Premières peuples du Québec
Exposition permanente, Musée de la civilisation
Québec, Québec

J'étais récipiendaire d'une bourse de création du Musée de la civilisation pour une oeuvre d'art contemporain. Je n'ai pas les images finales des salles montées, mais j'inclus ici quelques images de mon oeuvre, "l'envolée" en installation.

Territoires partagés / Shared Lands

 9 novembre - 15 décembre 2013
Centre d'artistes Vaste et vague, Carleton sur mer, Québec.

Group residency and exhibition with Visual artists Nadia Myre, Jordan Bennett, Sonia Robertson. Writers/Witnesses: Caroline Loncol-Daigneault, Guy Sioui Durand. Curated by France Trépanier.

During the 10 day residency I completed two new works for the exhibition: Ugstaqamuit - the Mi'kmac word for "to be born" and also for the Earth, which translates to "This is where we are from". As well, I created a collaborative piece through different workshops in which participants drew me a "map" of how they see their personal territory. I filmed the act of drawing and edited the clips together into a 18 minute floor-projected video. In the final version, layers of drawings merge and flow in and out of each other.
