About the artist:
Francesca Carella Arfinengo is a settler person of colour based in Winnipeg. She is an arts administrator and artist. Using mostly textiles, her art practice explores transculturalism, displacement and immigration. She is interested in the effects of colonialism in humanity's relationship to the land.
This installation was curated by Mariana Muñoz Gomez, on behalf of Collecting, Citing, Curating (CCC), a research cluster interested in the creative acts of collecting, citing, and curating, and in considering these active iterative processes that give objects meaning. CCC is based at the University of Manitoba, with funding from the University of Manitoba Institute for the Humanities.
