In this public performance, artist Jeneen Frei Njootli will activate her installation artwork on view in Àbadakone | Continuous Fire | Feu continuel.
Frei Njootli’s work challenges the permanence of capitalist, consumer-driven systems and honours Vuntut Gwitchin womxn’s labour and cultural knowledge.
In this work, she presents land, body, culture and history through an arrangement of intertwined residues, which include a large photograph of beaded patterns impressed onto the artist’s skin, to be followed with audio recorded during the performance of scraping this photo off the wall, and the image fragments left behind.
The performance will be followed by a Q&A with artists Dayna Danger and Jeneen Frei Njootli (bilingual question period).
