Unwind: Performance Art Exhibition

Fatine-Violette Sabiri

Georgia Graham
kassandra walters

VERNISSAGE: 5:30–9PM ! Monday February 18th

EXHIBITION OPEN: 9AM–9PM, Monday–Friday February 18th – February 22nd 2019

Unwind presents seven performance art events in one evening. Each makes a stimulating inquiry into familiar materials. The body becomes an instrument. Music and silence are translated into movement. The subconscious is written and the writing becomes drawing. Routine becomes uneasy. Pop songs give way to catharsis. Social space becomes the site of vulnerability. Follow these trajectories into the unknown.

My art is grounded in the belief of one universal energy which runs through everything: from insect to man, from man to spectre, from spectre to plant from plant to galaxy. My works are the irrigation veins of this universal fluid. Through them ascend the ancestral sap, the original beliefs, the primordial accumulations, the unconscious thoughts that animate the world.

-Ana Mendieta

Braiding Our Stories engages with the diversities of Indigeneity, bringing together twelve Indigenous voices that use storytelling in their artistic practices—as both method and meaning—to explore links between place, culture, kinship, and identity.

In her book, “Indigenous Methodologies: Characteristics, Conversations, and Contexts” (2009), Cree scholar Margaret Kovach notes that as Indigenous peoples, “our knowledges cannot be universalized because they arise from our experience with places” (Kovach 2009, 61).

Throughout this show—located on unceded lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation—we seek to create a space that fosters Indigenous cross-cultural storytelling and knowledge sharing. We aim to spark a dialogue that “resists singular/homogenized narratives” of Indigenous identity and instead, emphasizes the interconnectedness of Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island through place, practices, and histories (Gualtieri and Homsi Vinson 2018, 8).

— Alexandra Nordstrom (Plains Cree, Euro-Canadian), Curator Juliet Mackie (Métis, Cree, Dené, English), Assistant Curator
