Picto Prophecy Project
November 25, 2011
Opening November 25 at the En’owkin Centre (189 Green Mtn Rd, Penticton BC) and online at React2012.
The Picto Prophesy Project supports the Ullus Collective in the creation of location-based artworks using GPS technology to integrate audio, video and new media into the land. This innovative approach builds on the tradition of storytelling using pictographs, rock landmarks, Totem Poles and Story Poles.
Participating artists include: Victoria Baptiste, Mariel Belanger, Tracey Kim Bonneau, Chris Bose, Bracken H’anuse Corlett and Warren Hooley. Senior artist Cease Wyss will participate as a guest artist and mentor. Indigenous/ Traditional Ecological Knowledge Keeper, Richard Armstrong, will also share his knowledge and expertise.
The Ullus is an Indigenous collective based in Penticton that brings together artists to share knowledge, build skills and develop innovative projects. Funding for the project is gratefully provided by the Canada Council for the Arts.
Picto Prophesy is curated by Jennifer Pickering and Tracey Kim Bonneau.
