Oxygen’s December resident ready to show off installation

Oxygen Art Centre's December Artist in Residence

Oxygen Art Centre will be hosting an opening reception for the installation of its December Artist in Residence, Bracken Hanuse Corlett.

Corlett has been in residence all month creating new work that continues his exploration of Wuulhu, a Wuikinuxv expression meaning “to fuse together.” For Corlett this fusion is the coming together of his First Nations and Scottish ancestry.

He hails from the Sunshine coast and is descendant of two Northwest Coast Nations, the Wuikinuxv and Klahoose Nations. Born between two worlds Corlett finds resolution in his creative practice, which consists of a variety of media including video, Vjing, painting and carving.

Corlett’s career as a multimedia artist is moving rapidly and keeping him very busy. Notable to mention is that Corlett is one of the founders of the Vancouver Indigenous Media Arts Festival. He has studied Northwest Coast art, carving and design from acclaimed Heiltsuk artists Bradley Hunt and his sons Shawn Hunt and Dean Hunt.

He is a recent graduate of the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, a recipient of several awards for his work including grants from the British Columbia Arts Council, Aboriginal Arts and Development award and the Canada Council for the Arts.

Oxygen Art Centre invites you to celebrate this unforgettable installation of Corlett’s new work made during his residency. The reception will take place on Monday, December 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Oxygen Art Centre in the alley at 320 Vernon Street.
