ALLYSON MITCHELL, Ladies Sasquatch
Winnipeg Art Gallery
May 30 to August 16, 2009
Toronto-based sculptor and installation artist Allyson Mitchell brings her show Ladies Sasquatch to the Winnipeg Art Gallery May 30 to August 16. It’s a startling amalgamation of feminism and fun fur. Working mainly with found textiles and folksy craft techniques, she’s set up a free-standing set of wild women. Curator Carla Garnet describes them as symbolizing “the mythical feminine as something not easily captured or domesticated.”
