Opening night: Friday, Apr 5th, 6–9pm

Reclaiming our Roots is a show about tradition and the contemporary development of Indigenous practices as working Indigenous women artists with evolving creative practices. The Indigenous Women Artists Collective (IWA) is made up of eleven indigenous self-identified women who have worked out of the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver since before 2013. IWA aims to present their artwork to the general public, to community members across Vancouver, and beyond. Together, they’ve built a platform for Indigenous women to share, teach, and exhibit their creative practices.

The collective teaches workshops in and around the city of Vancouver, and are working on promoting and developing the careers of Indigenous women. IWA has been together since 2014 and has received several awards including awards from the First Peoples Cultural Council in 2014 and 2018. In 2015, IWA exhibited at the Roundhouse and UBC Learning Exchange and are currently planning for their residency this summer through the Creative City Strategy Grant.

Participating artists: Allison Burns Joseph, Arlene Bowman, Chantel Joseph-Bordeau, Coco Agecoutay, Doris Fox, Georgina Wing-K’lem, Haisla Collins, Jacqueline West, Marilyn Mckee, Shevonne Hall, Veronica Iza.

Intrusive Thoughts: Self-Portraits by Riisa Gundesen

Intrusive Thoughts: Self-Portraits by Riisa Gundesen

Opening Reception: Friday, January 25th from 6.00-9.00pm
Exhibition runs: January 25th to March 16th, 2019

Stay tuned for the Spring Capilano Review launch featuring work by Riisa Gundesen at Gallery Gachet in March 2019!

Intrusive Thoughts is a solo exhibition featuring self-portraits by Riisa Gundesen. This exhibition explores feminine representation, the abject, and mental health. In the context of Riisa’s work, the abject denies the viewer the anticipated pleasure of looking at the feminine body by showing mental and bodily functions that are often hidden or repressed. Riisa illustrates compulsive scratching, picking, and over-grooming in her self-portraits through the use of texture, paint, and ambiguous figures. At the same time, she uses rich and energetic paint colours to draw the audience into her paintings and evoke feelings of intrigue, alarm, and empathy. Together, Intrusive Thoughts investigates the possibilities of the abject as a metaphor for lived experience with anxiety, intrusive thoughts, and depression.

Riisa Gundesen is a visual artist based in Edmonton. She recieved her BFA from the University of Lethbridge in 2012, and her MFA from the University of Saskatchewan in 2017. In the context of contemporary figurative painting, her work deals with femininity, mental illness, and the abject. Gundesen currently teaches visual art at the University of Alberta and the City of Edmonton.
