ART VISION STATEMENTS
Montreal-based visual artist Nadia Myre believes all objects have a story to tell. In her most recent body of work, Myre, a member of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation, showcases a series of cylindrical objects that address the themes of identity, language, desire, and memory. Part of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ special season dedicated to Aboriginal women, Myres’ latest exhibition, “Scattered Remains” highlights 20 of her pieces made between 2000 and 2007, including her new series Code Switching. Myre in known for photographing items in isolation, creating a sense of dislocation and mystery. Using white beads found along riverbanks, the artist also incorporates the act of beading as a way to connect with her Algonquin heritage. “Scattered Remains” is on view at the MMFA until May 27th, 2018.
