Rolande Souliere’s Collage Workshops
Artback NT Visual Arts Artist-in-Residence Program
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, and a member of Michipicoten First Nation, Souliere addresses the socio-political issues and worldviews of her Indigenous heritage through abstraction by means of incorporating organic forms, labour intensive material processes and the assisted readymade.
She is inviting participants to join her through a series of open lab participatory workshops in Alice Springs. The collages created will go on to be exhibited internationally as one large scaled collage titled The Collage of Indigenization. This work will mark the beginning of an ongoing project that will take place in various locations nationally and internationally.
Participants are encouraged to bring personal materials such as photographs, images, postcards and objects that resonate with their ideas of what it means to be ‘Indigenous’ in today’s world. Paper, pencils, erasers, scissors, glue and other basic materials will be supplied.
Please note: the collages created during the open lab workshops will be contributed to the Collage of Indigenization installation and exhibited internationally with the participants acknowledged in the exhibition.

‘The inaugural Artist-in-Residence program has offered the community opportunities to engage and exchange with a highly skilled innovative contemporary artist. The workshops provide a forum for artistic and cultural exchange where there are no boundaries to the creative application of ideas.’ Simha Koether.
