Roots Above Branches is a collective of six recent University of Manitoba - School of Art Indigenous graduates from the BFA honours program. Our name, Roots above Branches, references to both our shared use of tree branches and other natural materials in our individual practices. It also references the nature of some Indigenous languages wherein the order of the words does not matter in conveying meaning, we felt that this allows us to reference multiple Indigenous languages as we all come from varied backgrounds. This upcoming show incorporates everyone utilizing naturalistic materials with a sense of grounding and earthing. It will explore themes of identity, our individual perspectives, and our connection to the land. Roots Above Branches highlights the importance of where we come from and the cultures we are born into.
Opening Reception: Friday April 6, 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM
