Tanya Lukin Linklater’s new work We wear one another, comprising digital video with audio and wall text, is the final trace of Soundings: An Exhibition in Five Parts.
In this installation piece, you will see excerpts of text composed by the artist in relation to a Mackenzie Delta Inuvialuit gut-skin parka, held in the Hudson’s Bay Company Collection at the Manitoba Museum. The gut-skin parka was on view at Agnes as part of Soundings, where it became a score for a performance the artist developed with dancers Ceinwen Gobert and Danah Rosales, and composer/musician Laura Ortman, through an open-rehearsal process. The installation at Agnes remains on view through 30 June.
This performance, We wear one another, was presented at the Ka’tarohkwi Festival of Indigenous Arts at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts on 24 March 2019.
