Endurance…..Patience is programmed in conjunction with the national Beading Symposium – Ziigimine-shin, taking place from February 6-9, 2020 in Winnipeg. Basing Urban Shaman’s group exhibition on the title of Francesca Hebert-Spence’s group exhibition at the Manitoba Craft Council, May the Land Remember You as You Walk Upon Its Surface, four Indigenous artists were chosen as part of Urban Shaman’s group exhibition and each individual explores conceptual politics in relation to the land.
In this show, Carrie Allison’s work, Red River Beading (Sîpîy), is the most illustrative example of an enduring desire to produce a beaded project. In addition to this project, she has also brought a video animation titled, To Honour, which is a visual documentation of the beading process as a meditative homage to plant life.
Ruth Cuthand’s Boil Water Advisory is a smaller installation of a much larger series of glass vessels that show various drinking containers filled with water and within each container is a beaded piece portraying a type of harmful bacteria.
Catherine Blackburn’s artwork, Aboriginal Classics, utilizes the delicate material of tea bags filled with Indigenous plant materials picked from various locations around Canada. In her other series titled, Our Mother(s) Tongue, she has produced black pillows printed with open mouths and tongues pierced by needles to represent historical accounts of Indigenous children who were physically and painfully reprimanded when they spoke their own language in residential schools.
Nadia Myre’s four framed pieces are from an older series that she completed in 2002. This incredible project titled, Indian Act, brought groups of people together to bead fifty-six pages of the Canadian Government’s Indian Act document.Show Map
