Description

There is a continuity in the work that nichola feldman-kiss has produced over the last 15 years, reflected in the survey exhibition witness presented at the Ottawa Art Gallery. A powerful examination of identity, embodiment, relational experience and traumatic memory, the works in witness tell stories of personal, cultural, and historical confict.

Born in Ottawa, Ontario—her Bajan father, a refugee of the Nazi program, and her mother of diverse heritage characteristic of Jamaica’s colonial history— feldman-kiss anchors her work in autobiography and experiential research. She earned a BFA in Photography from the University of Ottawa in 1991 and an MFA in Photography/Art and Critical Studies from the California Institute of Arts in 1996. Influenced by critical theory, her practice has since transitioned into a model of practice-led research— a methodology informed by the concept that making art produces and disseminates knowledge.

Since 2001, feldman-kiss’s performative interventions and collaborations have earned the support of many governing bodies of research, including the National Research Council of Canada (2000–01, 2004–06); the Ottawa Hospital Eye Institute (2008) and the Canadian Forces in collaboration with the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Sudan (2010–11).

Alexandra Badzak, Director and CEO Ottawa Art Gallery 2015

This publication is produced in conjunction with nichola feldman-kiss | witness, curated by Catherine Sinclair and Michelle Gewurtz. Presented at the Ottawa Art Gallery from October 2, 2015–February 7, 2016.
