Janice Tanton – "Self Portrait In Canoe"

[vsw id=”nsIA12Ej3yE” source=”youtube” width=”425″ height=”344″ autoplay=”no”]This video piece was part of an installation for the exhibition “Yours, Mine, The Other” with friend, Anishnabe artist Don Ahnahnsisi McIntyre in May, 2010 at Elevation Gallery in Canmore, AB.

Designed to contain artifacts and imagery from my childhood as it related to the canoe, it looped on a Mac laptop inside a canoe, also containing things about me….my life. Photographs of my children and husband, loved ones, paints, paintbrushes and cherished objects all occupied space in the “Journey Vessel for My Soul”.
