Sewing thread, laser cut on vellum, wood , time.

My socially engaged practice can be understood as working to rebuild doors whose removal increases vulnerability and removes dignity. This piece is documentation of that process. It involves time to knit together the small threads that build relationships, questioning what anchors our current systems which require rooming houses (and my role in them), and translating this fragile process back to a gallery.

About the artist
About the artist

Corrie Peters
Winnipeg, MB

Peters is a post-disciplinary artist whose primary medium is relationship. She has learned about art and how to be in the world from the many people who have been willing to sit with her in her ignorance, struggles and joys: people who have taught her the strength of silence and the realities of systems of power. Peters currently lives with her family on Treaty One Land in Winnipeg.
