aceartinc.: Homemaking - Chantal Mierau
March 1 - April 5
Opening Reception March 1
Artist Talk March 9, 2 pm

Ms Mierau has demonstrated flair and thoughtful engagement with the themes of work, families, and the Mennonite religion. Her videos and performances amuse, unsettle, and provoke questions about what it is to exist, and to seek meaning.  Homemaking is a video installation that weaves together imagery from weekly chores and insect lifecycles.

Ms Mierau is available to give interviews in French and English.
