Performance by Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory

In conjunction with virtual Art Toronto 2020, Feheley Fine Arts was pleased to present a live performance by multi-disciplinary artist Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory. Joining us via Zoom live from her home in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Williamson Bathory’s spectacular performance was a mix of uaajeerneq (Greenlandic mask dance), spoken word, and visual storytelling. The artist reflected on the present moment and the transition of seasons — from a fleeting autumn to the long dark winter.

An established and multi-faceted artist, Williamson Bathory’s practice centres on uaajeerneq. Her video and performance work has been featured in numerous national and international exhibitions. She is also recipient of a number of awards, including the inaugural Kenojuak Ashevak Memorial Award, given by the Inuit Art Foundation in 2018, and most recently the International Sinchi Indigenous Artist Award in 2020.
