Rolande Souliere - Solo Exhibition
April 5 – August 25, 2019
Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver
Rolande Souliere was born in Toronto and is Anishinaabe and member of the Michipicoten First Nation. She became a contemporary artist after migrating to Australia in the late nineties. She currently splits her time between Australia and Canada.
Her solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery, presented across the gallery’s two public spaces—the street level windows along the Nelson St and Richard St facades, and off-site at the nearby Yaletown-Roundhouse train Station—draws from an extensive body of work that uses materials associated with the mapping and marking of space, such as road barriers, caution tape, and traffic signage, to consider land claims (both settled and unsettled), borders, territories, and sovereignty, and how colonial infrastructures have impacted spaces and the people within them. For this highly visible, public art opportunity, Souliere will wrap the train station pavilion and gallery façade in a highly reflective barrier tape, using the colour symbolism of the four directions of the earth in Indigenous culture.
