Outta This World is a multidisciplinary show comprised of drawing, video, music, performance and installation. It was initiated by my interest in the concept of the nation-state, more particularly Canada, and the way it imposes certain identities on its citizens through violence and repression. Using strategies of humour, abject beauty, social engagement and ritual, my work proposes alternate possibilities for Canadian identity through a difficult, yet ultimately beneficial process of de-repression.
Shown as my MFA Thesis show at the University of Waterloo Art Gallery, 2015

I demand nothing less than the creation of a Canada that is more fantastic, more fabulous, more wondrous, more glamourous, more mystical, more spiritual, more positively sexual, more sensual, more romantic, a place that makes people feel more empowered and attractive, combatting repression; a Canada that is inclusive, a Canada that transcends all borders and repels evil as it ventures out into the cosmic!
