In-Between Worlds
In-Between Worlds explores the mixing and transforming of bi-cultural identities - Aboriginal and Euro-Canadian. This series addresses the idea of liminality, of being betwixt and between cultural identities and histories. In-Between Worlds is a sequence of moments that appear out of the ordinary and can be interpreted as being in a state of suspended belief. Talisman and prop-like sculptures become extensions of the body that suggests a collaging of identities. In-Between Worlds is a dialogue in which the viewer questions themselves and the world in new ways.
