LONG WEEKEND RECAP: WALL TO WALL 2016

Rain kept me away from stopping by 782 Main for a visit on Sunday, so I made up for lost time yesterday. The PA System is almost finished their mural! 

Visual artist duo Clandestinos began principal outlines for their piece at 782 Main. "We don't do projections", Smoky tells me. Shalak gets in the lift and Smoky gives her direction from the ground, while both reference a crude mock-up of their piece. 

The woman herself is meant to be Indigenous of South America. Shalak and I spoke with elders here in Winnipeg, and they gave us direction as to what symbolism we should use on her poncho and jewelry. Combining symbolism from the south and north is a beautiful thing - Indigenous people standing together.
