"I'm trying to pull on my own heartstrings"

Dramatic self-portraits by Cree artist Meryl McMaster explore questions of identity, hybridity and land through use of Indigenous and colonial imagery. “In-Between Worlds and Wanderings say more about me as a person than any other work I’ve produced. They are a window into me as an individual and speak for my own stories and my own history.” For McMaster, the dualities of different identities, which are steeped in the colonial history of interactions between First Nations and European settlers, are at the core of this new work. But, rather than dwell within the negative or confining spaces of liminality, the work in Wanderings allows for an oscillation between identities, and puts forward an assertion that for Indigenous people, identity has never been static."
