Opening Reception Friday April 28, 7:00 pm, at the Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina.
Lifting Stone, artist Roewan Crowe invites you to join her in a desert
landscape for an intimate encounter with poetic text. Performing
excerpts from her book Quivering Land, a rather queer Western that
attempts to reckon with the legacies of violence and colonization, she
creates a space of vulnerability and
connection. The artist invokes Leslie Feinberg and their work on “stone
butch” to articulate a queer femme notion of ‘stone,’ opening up an
exploration of art encounters that contemplate non-physical touching and
the act of being touched.
Artist Roewan Crowe was born under
the big skies of Saskatchewan and raised in scofflaw Alberta. Crowe left
the prairies to deepen her understanding of healing, art, and feminism
and to complete graduate studies at OISE, U of Toronto. Her art and
writing focus on queer feminist reclamation practices. She lives and
works in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
