Artist's statement: Indigenous collage

Lianne Charlie


"Indigenous collage invites us to work with the fragmented realities of Indigenous identities, families, communities, cultures, and lands that have been created (sometimes violently, always intentionally) by historical and contemporary colonialism. It offers a space for Indigenous historical realities, present realities, and desired futures to intersect in innovative and unexpected ways. Collage accounts for and accommodates the chaotic, contained and often contradictory life-worlds that have been left in the wake of continued settler colonialism by creating a space for Indigenous Peoples to navigate them in creative and empowered ways."
