U-HALL COMMUNITY SPACE

CAHKIPÊHIKAN // CHEYENNE RAIN LEGRANDE ᑭᒥᐊᐧᐣ


Hidden underneath, is a gentle song Rooted in language
A blue tear to take away the pain
I sing to my Mosum and Kokum
I sing with the strength of Cahkipêhikan

Cahkipêhikan is a performance based in language. I explore and move with Nehiyawewin. I sing with my ancestors. I sing a traditional song that was shared with me from the ever beautiful Carol Powder. I sing with the strength of Cahkipêhikan.

Cheyenne Rain LeGrande ᑭᒥᐊᐧᐣ is a Nehiyaw Isko artist, from Bigstone Cree Nation. She currently resides in Amiskwaciy Waskahikan also known as Edmonton, Alberta. Cheyenne graduated from Emily Carr University with her BFA in Visual Arts in 2019. Her work often explores history, knowledge and traditional practices. Through the use of her body and language, she speaks to the past, present and future. Cheyenne’s work is rooted in the strength to feel, express and heal. Bringing her ancestors with her, she moves through installation, photography, video, sound, and performance art.


DOWNSTAIRS // JACQUELINE HUSKISSON


In my practice I am interested in exploring the line between reality and fiction; to create my own interpretation of where that line is. My artworks are ultimately questions to viewers about their own perceptions on life, their personal narratives and an active study of my own situation. Currently I am creating a new body of artwork that questions the act of Printmaking. Through my artworks I am asking questions like “what can still be considered printmaking?” and “Why print when you can draw?” Destroying the traditional notion of printmaking that emphases editioning and treating each print as a precious object and re-appropriating the imagery into other mediums such as painting, drawing and video. 

Jacqueline Huskisson received a B.F.A in Print Media from AU Arts in 2011. In 2017 she received an M.F.A in Interdisciplinary Studies from the Belfast School of Art. She has recently had solo exhibitions at Alberta Printmakers and Poolside Gallery (VideoPool, Winnipeg). Jacqueline has also been doing various projects, installations, and residencies around Canada, USA and Europe. She is the recipient of various local and national grants and was the inaugural receipt of the Scott Leroux Media Arts Exploration Fund and received a Juror’s award for SSNAP 2021. Her next project is a summer solo exhibition with the Helmut Project Space in Leipzig Germany.

VIRTUAL CROSSING // KATARINA MARINIC


Virtual Crossing is a series of non-narrative, silent, looping digital animations that explore a digital self that is in continual motion. Through a spectrum of bright colours, photo-montages using appropriated facial and bodily features move, bend, twist, and distort. Generously funded by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Nova Scotia Arts Council, this work began with the question “what if the digital version of the self becomes the only way to convey who you are?” Traditionally, online personas have served as an escape, a way to express another aspect of who you are. In my question about the digital self, I begin to speculate about a future in which embodied experiences no longer exist. Throughout the pandemic, many of us have been isolated with limited social contact, making it even more crucial to turn to digital devices to keep connected and informed. This increase in reliance on digital means of expression and communication is literally pulling us into a virtual existence, one that we have yet to fully understand and study due to its rapid development and continuously changing platforms.

Katarina Marinic (she/her) is a visual and media artist whose personal practice is rooted in the constructed and manipulated image. She creates representations of the human body as a means to explore fictional realities and the ever shifting boundary between the real and virtual. Her projects utilize appropriated and original photography, 2D/3D animation, installation, and projection. Katarina resides in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. Located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people.
