Abstract (English)

" A member of the self-governing Vuntut Gwitchin Nation, Frei Njootli’s practice is both invested in and materially tethered to that community, its way of life and the beings that support it. Her relationship to the matter with which she works is not abstract but defined by her lived experience in the far North. Moving between media, she considers the nature of her culture’s belongings (she rejects the term “artifacts”) as they are entangled with ancestral memory, contemporary community and care. She navigates their complex relationships to her own impermanent body and to the continued consumption of Indigenous people’s histories, labour and knowledge. " -- Publisher's website

" Based in Los Angeles, Horwitz sought to direct her practice through the consideration of limitation and rules as a means to experience greater freedom and depth of exploration within her work. Fundamental to the artist’s thinking is a relationship of numerical sequence, line and systems developed through intensive and exhaustive drawings that characteristically operated within the boundaries of the grid and evolved to be structured on the number eight. " -- Publisher's website.

" Raising questions surrounding ethics and ecology, the image grows out of recent research into Nicaragua’s rapidly expanding mining industry and its connection to Vancouver’s own history of resource extraction, occupation and expansion. Icaza-Largaespada’s subtle insertion of an enigmatic figure pictured within the manipulated landscape suggests a symbolic defiance against the continued colonial exploits of a Vancouver-based mining company in Nicaragua. " -- Publisher's website.
