Night Sea Journey: Visual Testimony + Sexual Violence Artist Talk by Laura Magnusson at MAWA

  • MAWA 611 Main Street Winnipeg Canada (map)

Free! Everyone welcome. Co-presented with Klinic. Megan Mann, a counsellor in Klinic's Sexual Assault Crisis Program will be present if anyone needs support. 

Laura Magnusson will discuss her current work in progress, a visual testimony of her journey through trauma after sexual violence, conveyed through metaphors of water. Over the past two years, Laura has spent countless hours on the seafloors of Northern Iceland and Cozumel, Mexico to collect underwater footage and compile her story. At MAWA, she will take us behind the scenes of this developing video work, sharing her process of finding voice and creating space to speak. Video excerpts will be shown and sculptural elements will be on display. More info here.
