Le homecoming – This series of textile works by jenna dawn maclellan is inspired by the artist’s return to Northern Ontario’s rural regions after having spent several years in Montreal. Confronted with the challenges posed by this vast expanse of boreal forest, she formulates a variety of playful strategies to defend herself against nature. With her snowmobile, bear skin rug, and anti-mosquito suit – all hand-knit – jenna dawn maclellan pays homage to the North of her childhood. The objects knit by maclellan are as familiar as they are fantastic. Being transposed into textile gives an air of storied marvelousness to their otherwise ordinary nature. This is how objects found in so many Northern Ontario sheds and garages are transformed into genuine icons of northernness. 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. @ Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario – 174 Elgin Street
