Water Meets Body is a solo exhibition by Winnipeg-based Métis artist Katherine Boyer, featuring new video, sculptural and textile works. Boyer’s art and research are rooted in Métis history, material culture and personal family narratives. Her installations – whether made of wood, textiles, beads, clay or video – reference her relations’ 200 year connection to the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers and their subsequent arrivals and departures which were often caused by division of land and/or disruption of access to it. Her own return to this geographic area has deeply impacted her artwork. She writes: “I feel a responsibility to project towards the future, with one hand greeting the past, to build new relationships to home, histories and recognizing our bodies inhabiting significant spaces.” (Publisher's website)
