I can’t make you those mitts because there is a hole in my heart and my hands hurt

Gallery 1
Mar 15 - Apr 21

Vuntut Gwitchin artist Jeneen Frei Njootli’s artistic practice engages directly with Gwich`in territory and culture through the artist’s lived experience and land based practices. Frei Njootli defines this as bushed theory - “a radical, grassroots way of being; one that requires getting some caribou blood and fiss guts on your hands.” Frei Njootli realizes this land-based methodology in the gallery by working with sounds, dust, grease, and power tools. The traces and residues of Frei Njootli’s sonic landscapes and physical markings remain once the artist’s body leaves the gallery space, reminding us of the artist’s labour, presence, and motion.
