Artist Talk — Katherine Boyer
VISITING ARTIST ZOOM TALKS – WINTER 2022
ISHKAABATENS WAASA GAA INAABATEG DEPARTMENT OF VISUAL ART
Katherine Boyer (Métis/Settler) is a multidisciplinary artist, whose work is focused on methods bound to textile arts and the handmade – primarily woodworking and beadwork. Boyer’s art and research encompasses personal family narratives, entwined with Métis history, material culture, architectural spaces (human made and natural). Her work often explores boundaries between two opposing things as an effort to better understand both sides of a perceived dichotomous identity. This manifests in long, slow, and considerate laborious processes that attempt to unravel and better understand history, environmental influences, and personal memories.
She has exhibited in numerous group shows across Canada including the Contemporary Native Art Biennale, ArtMur Montreal (2021), Undomesticated at the Koffler Gallery in Toronto (2019), and Li Salay at the Art Gallery of Alberta (2018). She currently has a solo exhibition, How the Sky Carries the Sun, at the Art Gallery of Regina.
Boyer has received a BFA from the University of Regina with a focus on Sculpture and Printmaking and an MFA at the University of Manitoba. She currently holds a position as an Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba, School of Art.
