Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15, 2pm-4pm
Labour’s trace a new exhibition by Karin Jones an interdisciplinary artist of African-Nova Scotian heritage and Amy Malbeuf a Métis visual artist from Rich Lake, Alberta. Jones and Malbeuf are makers of objects, transforming and subverting traditional and contemporary materials and processes through their investigations of cultural identity and historical narratives. Working with a disparate assembly of metal, leather, hominy, beads, tarpaulins, or animal and human hair, their objects are contemplations on labour — reflecting ideas connected to livelihood and histories of colonization. Notions of labour thread through the works grounded in concepts of livelihood – in ways of knowing, making, and living. While their works are charged with historical references their ideas exist in the contemporary world. In confronting historic misrepresentations with expressions of pride and strength, the artists disable colonial narratives and its destructive legacies and show us other ways of knowing through their labour.
