Penny Berens from Nova Scotia and I are working with a young freelance curator, Miranda Bouchard.
Miranda supports us.
She reminds us to create our true work.
My work is grounded in phenomenology and the huge inner world.
For me, phenomenology is the idea that just through living,
just through moving our bodies through time and space,
just through breathing and touching and hearing and tasting and seeing,
Our bodies retain knowledge.
Our bodies never forget.
Penny and I have been told that we make drawings with stitch,but drawing occupies a single plane,
The quiet. The strength.
The birdsongs. The wind.
Norah Rosamond Hughes gallery is a large heritage site within the MVTM museum.
The walls are thick, rough and natural. There will be a lot to experience.
There will be a lot of movement required.
No matter what comes along, we are always standing in the middle of a sacred space.
Everything that comes into our circle has come to teach us what we need to know.
