Join grunt gallery, in partnership with Capture Photography Festival, for an artist talk with Impatiently Inclined, a multi-disciplinary arts group comprised of Theo Pelmus, Kris Snowbird and Daina Warren. The collective’s work, Last Supper, will be installed in March at the Vancouver City Centre skytrain station as a part of Capture’s public art programming. They will be discussing the work as well as the larger series of photographic works, Human Nature.
Human Nature explores contemporary art expression within isolated communities to make the statement that art expression should not be limited nor bound by geography, cultural traditions, etc; rather, it should be inspired or challenged by them. The series engages with the natural and unnatural landscapes in a ‘high-gloss magazine’ aesthetic to break free of conventional historical Indigenous portraiture that has historically been used to make Indigenous people look more “Native.” The second edition of the Human Nature project was developed around photographs produced on Kris Snowbird’s rez with the participation of her family in April and June of 2019.
