Anishnawbekwe artists Celeste Pedri-Spade and Leanna Marshall.

Jingle dresses [healing/story dresses], photography and beaded medallions have a contemporary twist on the traditional forms. However, the process of listening, learning and teaching remains the same. Celeste Pedri-Spade and Leanna Marshall collaborate to present an exhibition focusing on learning, storytelling and healing. Zaagiwidin is an Anishnaabe word meaning love and kindness. Zaagiwidin brought Leanna and Celeste together to collaborate and present an exhibition blending traditional Indigenous craft with contemporary art practises.

Artistes anichinabées Celeste Pedri-Spade et Leanna Marshall.

Les robes à franges [robes de guérison ou de conteuse], les photos et les médaillons perlés donnent une tournure contemporaine aux formes traditionnelles. Cependant, le processus d’écoute, d’apprentissage et d’enseignement demeure le même. Celeste Pedri-Spade et Leanna Marshall collaborent à la présentation d’une exposition axée sur l’apprentissage, l’art du récit et la guérison. Zaagiwidin est un mot anichinabé qui signifie amour et bonté. Zaagiwidin a permis de réunir Leanna et Celeste afin qu’elles collaborent et présentent une exposition mariant l’artisanat traditionnel autochtone et les pratiques artistiques contemporaines.
