Distributed Identities Residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity

I have just returned from Distributed Identities, a 5-week thematic residency led by artists Deanna Bowen and Brendan Fernandes at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Banff, Alberta. My residency was supported by the Canada Council and the Banff Centre. It was a remarkable time of experimenting with new mediums and ideas that are sure to have a lasting impact on my practice. During my time there, I worked with the elements—the snow, ice, below-zero temperatures— and saris to consider the ways in which climate and landscape impact upon a migration journey to Canada. You can find work-in=process images and thoughts on my time at Banff on my Instagram feed. Thank you to the Canada Council, the Banff Centre and the facilitators, colleagues and staff for an incredible experience nestled in the Canadian Rockies and the land of the Stoney Nakoda, Blackfoot, and Tsuut’ina Nations.
