Under the Sky Blanket

A seed by: Nadia Myre
Project: Main Pool
Nadia Myre is a renowned interdisciplinary artist and Algonquin member of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation. As exemplified by seminal works such as Indian Act (2002), The Scar Project (2005-2013), and A Casual Reconstruction (2015), Myre explores the politics of belonging by positioning it within a framework of Indigenous resistance and resilience. Extensively exhibited and collected, Myre’s work can be found in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, Smithsonian Institute National Museum of American Indian, Kadist Foundation, Musée nationale des beaux-arts du Québec, Art Gallery of Ontario, Montreal Art Contemporary, and Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Myre is the recipient of numerous commissions and awards, notably the Louis-Comtois Prize (2021), Sobey Art Award (2014) for Canadian artists under 40, and in 2019 was inducted into the Order of Arts and Letters of Québec.

A few words of text I scribbled while recently sailing on a big wooden boat with 5 sails from Martinique to Grenada this past September at the tail end of hurricane Fiona. These are personal ramblings as I tried to resource myself instead of falling into the darkness of depression or a nervous breakdown. I sometimes wondered if these two words are interchangeable… Because I got a little personal in this description (which might be inspiring as its own seed to someone), I will only publish to the closed group here. With love, Nadia
