daphne’s Artist Residency / résidence d'artiste au daphne
(Projects funding from Conseil des arts de Montreal)

March 9 – April 16, 2022

asinnajaq is a story-teller. The multidisciplinary artist’s residency at daphne began with the fragment of a story. The story remembered is that of Inuit brought south for health services.

The work created in this residency responds to those journeys. asinnajaq’s suspended textile work makes the loss of connection tangible, while emphasizing the connections forged while people were away from family and home.

daphne operates on unceded lands. We are proud to be a part of this urban island territory, known as Tiohtià:ke by the Kanien’kehá:ka and as Mooniyang by the Anishinaabe, as it continues to be a rich gathering place for both Indigenous and other peoples.
