earth. sea. sky. constellations for my relations

Hannah Claus (Montréal)

February 15 – March 17, 2018

In this exhibition, Hannah Claus highlights the relationships between various elements that structure our world. It features ‘water song’, an imposing yet intricate veil of thread and digital imagery that replicates the audio waveforms of a Mi’kmaq water song. Uniting voice, water and song, the installation itself is based on the principles inherent to kahion:ni, or wampum belts, in which sea and sky are united.

Hannah Claus is a visual artist of English and Kanien’kehà:ka / Mohawk ancestries living in Tiohtià:ke (Montreal). In her installations, she uses process and materials to address memory and transformation from within an Indigenous worldview.
