Herd by Jeneen Frei Njootli is a performance which turns an ear to materials, such as caribou antlers, to sound the transmission of embedded and layered ancestral knowledge. This performance of this work will be aired live on NAISA Radio in a special Art's Birthday broadcast from White Water Gallery during the opening of the exhibition wnoondwaamin | we hear them, an exhibition curated by Lisa Myers, with works by Autumn Chacon, Jeneen Frei Njootli, Melissa General and Suzanne Morrissette. This exhibition calls for the occupation of sound waves, exploring the capacity of these energies to access knowledge and memory. wnoondwaamin | we hear them is organized and circulated by Trinity Square Video with the support of the Ontario Arts Council.


Carbon Sugar Air
part of Waves of Connection, a multi-venue installation
By Instant Places
January 17, 2017 to February 28, 2017
Online installation beginning January 17, 2017 at http://carbon.naisa.ca/
In the online audio installation Carbon Sugar Air, Instant Places generates and broadcasts slowly evolving sound objects inspired by the natural forms and processes of lichen symbiosis. What is fascinating about lichens is their ability to adapt and thrive: they fashion collaborative partnerships in which photosynthesizing organisms generate sugars from atmospheric carbon dioxide to share with the substrate elements that give them physical form. Instant Places is comprised of Ian Birse and Laura Kavanaugh.

On January 17 at 5:40 PM, Instant Places will be joined by Tina Pearson in an online performance of Carbon Sugar Air for the EURO-RADIO Art's Birthday broadcast at http://artsbirthday.ebu.ch and on the EBU-Satellite channel LIZST from Kunstradio at ORF Vienna.
