Artist’s statement: “Both the images and sound work exist synergistically, centered on ideas of intra-actions, entanglements, enfoldings and assemblies. The image informs the language and the language is built from the image. Each image was constructed based on the conceptual framework of the Anishinaabemowin, being an agglutinative language, is built upon the fragments of other words or morphemes. This lends itself to an incredibly rich framework from which the speaker can precisely and eloquently express and manifest a complexity of worlds. The fluidity inherent in the language forms a critical method from which to consider the cyclical process of assemblies/[dis]assemblues and [dis]memberments/ rememberances. That is, the space and movement between these spectra are the generative spaces that inform this work.”
