Barbarians, Bears and Beavers: Life as an Artist Along County Road 1

Wed Nov 14, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Mary Anne Barkhouse's talk will take you through an overview of her sculpture/installation practice and travels across the North American continent. From her travels to France, Mary tells you of her research into the origins of cultural upheaval in this country covered with snow and ice eight months of the year. Inhabited by barbarians, bears and beavers...Voltaire didn't know what he was missing. 
Mary Anne Barkhouse was born in Vancouver, BC - and has strong ties to both coasts. Her mother is from the Nimpkish band, Kwakiutl First Nation of Alert Bay, BC and her father is of German and British descent from Nova Scotia. As a result of personal and family experience with land and water stewardship, Barkhouse's work examines ecological concerns and intersections of culture through the use of animal imagery. Inspired by issues surrounding empire and survival, Barkhouse creates installations that evoke consideration of the self as a response to history and environment. She currently resides in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario.
