Artist: Ursula Johnson
Curator: Robin Metcalfe
College Art Galleries, University of Saskatchewan
September 25 - December 5, 2014
Ursula Johnson’s interdisciplinary practice ranges from fine craft and traditional Aboriginal art forms through performance and installation. Mi’kwite’tmn (Do You Remember) examines ideas of ancestry, identity and cultural practice. Johnson deconstructs and manipulates the function and image of Mi’kmaw basketry, using traditional techniques to build non-functional forms.
Organised and circulated by Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery, Halifax in collaboration with Unama’ki College.
