Women Wielding Knives: Exploring Power in Domesticity by Jodi Hildebrand, curated by Jaimie Isaac

In Women Wielding Knives, Jodi Hildebrand addresses contemporary issues of domestic duty, gender roles, consumerism, and the food economy through a feminist perspective. It is more relevant than ever to address women’s roles and value in society given the current unrest, the baby boomlet, food security and sustainability across the globe.

Jodi is a Winnipeg-based artist and a descendant of European Mennonite heritage in Canada. Primarily she produces brightly coloured and visually celebratory mixed media acrylic paintings.


A Thread, A Thought a Knot by Chantel Mierau 

Chantel Mierau uses string, yarn, and fabric as an integral component of printmaking, video, sculpture and other forms of image-making. A Thread, a Thought, a Knot uses basic sewing supplies to explore order, chaos, and the process of thinking, especially moments of confusion, epiphany and rumination. Using multiple approaches, the artist seeks out parallels between knotted thread and thought patterns.

Mierau is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Winnipeg, originally from Langham, Saskatchewan.
