WHITEFEATHER HUNTER

INTERFACE / ART & SCIENCE RESIDENCY

— /

It’s with great enthusiasm that Sporobole welcomes artist WhiteFeather Hunter in the context of the 2017-2018 art-science residency. The artist will be working with Dr Denis Groleau, Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Microorganisms and Industrial Processes at Université de Sherbrooke.

‘‘My role as an artist will be to showcase the research through the production of a number of artistic objects, including video/ animation, textile, image-based work and an archive of the research process. These kinds of opportunities are critical to transdisciplinary artists, providing support for research-creation that fallsoutside of traditional artistic disciplines and norms’’. WhiteFeather Hunter
