Bruno Canadien presents new mixed media work that documents and catalogues his walking practice and land art in the Sheep River watershed of southern Alberta. Informed by his Dene and Scottish heritage, walking is traditional is cultural resilience and continuity in action, wherein the artist embodies a wholistic approach to artmaking through movement and observation in the real environment. For Bruno, walking provides essential connections with family, community, language, and the outdoors, as well as boundless opportunities for learning. The artifacts of this practice, manifested in photo, text and digital images on paper, invites viewers to a fresh understanding of their home while reflecting on relationships within the foothills and mountains of the Sheep.
Please join us at the Opening Reception for walking is traditional and Hey You! Land! on September 9, 2023, between 1 and 4 pm. Remarks will be held at 2 pm.
