Artist Talk - Wapikwanew: Blossom (Floraison)

June 23, 2017 12:00 pm to 12:45 pm. Curator: Jaime KoebelArtists: Barry Ace, Christi Belcourt, Simon Brascoupé, David White Deer Charette, Kelly Duquette, Myrosia Humeniuk, Nathalie Mantha and Florence YeeThe exhibition continues until July 30, 2017 inclusively.VERNISSAGEThursday, June 22, 5:30 to 7:30 pmWâpikwanew means blossom in Nehiyawewin (the Cree language), and blossoms are a form of natural beauty that emerges in the wake of a winter's sleep. From floral beadwork to ink on eggs, from paint on canvas to birch bark bitings, floral images are a source of symbolism that support self-identification, cultural identity, memory, traditional knowledge and meditation.Through this exhibition, I hope to express two main ideas. First and foremost, I want to highlight how floral art serves as a source of inspiration and connection in so many cultures, something that I personally witnessed in my youth. Secondly, I want to share how flowers provided a kind of balance that took my mind away from the less beautiful things around me. [...]This exhibition is meant to be enjoyed and I hope it brings you happiness and encourages you to think about how flowers are represented in your own life.- Excerpt from the essay by Jaime KoebelPresented in collaboration with the NAC's Canada Scene.https://nac-cna.ca/en/canadascene. 110 Laurier Avenue WestOttawa, ON K1P 1J1..
