Massive Jingle, Seattle Art Fair

Seattle Art Fair

CHARLENE VICKERS AND MARIA HUPFIELD | JINGLES AND SOUNDS FOR SPEAKING TO OUR GRANDMOTHERS

Presented with Fazakas Gallery

This new performance with monumental jingles builds on Vickers and Hupfield’s collaborations with hand sewn cardboard megaphones. Inspired by the work of the ground breaking Anishinaabekwe artist Rebecca Belmore, whose work Ayum-ee-aawach Oomama-mowan: Speaking to Their Mother (92-95) featured a large megaphone for people to speak into, the duo seek to both honor their forbears while expanding their investigations into the megaphone as an object to speak to history, to landscape, and the socio-political conditions that draw people together and apart. The lightweight cardboard and paper object becomes an activated prosthetic that speaks to jingles worn in Anishinaabe women’s jingle dress dancing.
