For SAW Video Media Art Centre on May 24th 2013 at 7:30pm in Club SAW, 67 Nicolas Street, Ottawa, I will present Contain that Force: 7 Solo Acts; a new project comprising video projection and live performance. Contain that Force: 7 Solo Acts features objects solicited from seven artists to be utilized in this project, including: Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Ann Beam, Laura Ortman, Waubgeshig Rice, Zachary Fabri, Sterlin Harjo and Andrea Geyer. Objects range from original work created specifically for this event to the symbolic. Activating these objects through performance, I attempt to form a new compendium of personal and historical narratives that intersect Native American performance art.
This performance is presented in association with the National Gallery of Canada’s International Indigenous project SAKAHAN, which will feature programming contributions from many galleries and artist-run-centres across the city in conjunction with the NGC’s main exhibition.
The event is free admission.
