breathing room reimagines the artist residency as a fluid space for collaboration, experimentation, relaxation and community connection
We are delighted to announce our September 2021 breathing room artist in residence: Wendel Vistan
Wendel Vistan is a Filipino-Canadian immigrant, student, and artist who resides on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories. She explores notions of narrative, landscape, home and displacement through film photography, painting, poetry and video. She has participated in youth art programs at Contemporary Art Gallery and Unit/Pitt. She is currently studying Sustainable Agriculture at Kwantlen Polytechnic University.
Facilitated by Iris Film Collective and EPFC North, breathing room artists are provided with some filmmaking materials and equipment, technical and creative support, and access to work/exhibition space at Moberly and/or Burrard View Fieldhouse. The residency also includes optional opportunities for artists to engage with the local community via workshops, talks, screenings and other public activities. breathing room artists are invited to share their creative discoveries at a free public in-person and/or online event on the last Thursday of their residency.
