Interruption I & II examines small acts of resistance through ephemeral installation. Referencing graffiti, the beadwork is both a beacon of survival and a metaphor for the calm spaces that we carve out for ourselves in times of chaos. Installed in the shrubbery of the University of Saskatchewan campus on Treaty 6 Territory, this work
surveys the power dynamics between the colonial architecture and natural landscape.
My work centres on the relationships between Indigeneity and institutions, teasing out stories that have been overshadowed by the dominant colonial narrative. I’m interested in exploring dynamic relationality and creating art that generates acts of kinship with the past, present, and future.
