Her Body Will Remember is an exhibition about making and the technologies of making. Three artists – Mariel Belanger, Tsēmā Igharas, and Tiffany Shaw-Collinge, explore their body’s memories of practice and technology through making. Using innovative materials and technologies, the artists explore the ingenuity of Indigenous arts practices, passed through communities, families, and kin. Her Body Will Remember is guest curated by Erin Sutherland, an Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Alberta.

In their poem, Leaks, Leanne Betasamosake Simpson writes,
“She’s always going to remember this
You are rebellion, resistance, re-imagination
Her body will remember”
