Join MAWA and the University of Winnipeg community for a curated screening of animated shorts:
Teeth and Worms by Alison Davis
Construction by Alison James
Winnipeg to Saskatoon by Brenna George
I Like Girls by Diane Obomsawin
Peak Experience by Leslie Supnet
Full of Fire by Rhayne Vermette
The screening will be followed by a discussion with the artists. This program is curated by animator Matea Radic.
Matea Radic is an artist from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, currently living and working in Winnipeg. Her work focuses on confronting the moment her childhood was split in two. Then four. Then eight, and so on. She confronts this displacement in hopes of allowing the trauma to release itself from the deepest part of her being. Longing for a feeling of home and belonging is a repetitive theme in her drawings. She aims to reintroduce herself to the person she suppressed for so long in an attempt to survive. There is a desperation to reclaim a time that is long gone. Her drawings, on the page and in animations, are a battlefield.
