    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    This is where it was, and this is what I saw. This is what I see, and this is what’s there now.
    Pointing The Finger #2 is a way to provide a voice for myself, my family and our land and homes that were destroyed to build the SW Calgary Ring Road AKA Tsuut’ina Trail.

    Who is in charge and who is responsible?

    Who do we celebrate and who do we listen to?

    If I don’t speak up, how can people forget a history they were told never existed?

    I am a multi-disciplinary artist and experimental musician that grew up on my family’s land in Tsuut’ina. My current practice is influenced by memory, place, trauma and the reconciliation between the three to reveal overwritten truths.

    The MNG LRT Space Presents: Riley Thérèse – Baptizing a Ghost

    Exhibition Runs: May 1 – 26, 2018
    Reception: May 24, 2018 6 – 8 pm
    Main Mall, at the Alberta College of Art and Design

    Baptizing a Ghost examines the aftermath of losing a family member. Using tissue paper left in my religious grandmother’s house after her passing, I sewed together a jacket that fits my form. In preforming a baptism upon myself wearing said jacket, I investigate the rituals that the living preform to comfort themselves in the wake of a death. By exposing the value of vulnerability and the significance of discomfort, I use the gallery as a platform to implicate the viewer in a dialogue pertaining to the hardships experienced by the both of us.

    Riley Thérèse is a Calgary and San Francisco based artist currently completing their BFA at the Alberta College of Art + Design. Working with personalized experiences, they focus on mental health, gender, family, and sexuality in the creation of unintentional self-portraiture.
