Sound Performance | Jeneen Frei Njootli

Jeneen Frei Njootli

Jeneen Frei Njootli is a Vuntut Gwich’in artist and a founding member of the ReMatriate Collective. In her interdisciplinary practice she uses media such as performance, sound and textiles. Much of her work deconstructs the history of the materials she uses. She investigates their relationship to trade, ceremonial regalia, and the politics of First Nations art. Her cinematic-scale photograph Knowledge Transference IV is included in MOCA’s inaugural exhibition BELIEVE, and she is shortlisted for the 2018 Sobey Art Award.

Njootli’s live sound performances are sonic landscapes; frequencies and living energies that carry knowledge, information and stories related to her personal experience and the world around her.

Join us for a special performance on Floor 1. No registration required.
