Artspace and Trent University are pleased to announce Lara Kramer, of Lara Kramer Danse, is the 2017-18 Trent University Ashley Fellow Artist In Residence. During the two-week residency, Kramer will present the immersive installation Phantom, stills & vibrations at Artspace and host a series of free workshops, teachings, and lectures that are open to all members of the public.

Lara Kramer’s Phantom, stills & vibrations draws the spectator into an immersive experience of the former Pelican Lake Indian Residential School, which was attended by three generations of the artist’s family. This performance and sound installation, created in collaboration with Stefan Petersen, creates an intimacy with the north (Lac Seul, ON) and confronts the brutal and complex relationships between Indigenous peoples and Settler society.

Bio
Lara Kramer is an Oji-Cree (Ojibwe and Cree) choreographer and multidisciplinary artist whose work is closely connected to her memories and Aboriginal roots. Kramer received her BFA in Contemporary Dance at Concordia University and is now the artistic director and choreographer of Lara Kramer Danse in Montreal. Working with strong visuals and narrative, Kramer’s work pushes the strength and fragility of the human spirit. Her work is political and potent, often examining political issues surrounding Canada and First Nations Peoples, and she has been recognized as a Human Rights Advocate through the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre. Kramer's works, presented widely across Canada and abroad to Australia, have been hailed by critics, notable examples include Fragments (2009), inspired by her mother's stories of being in residential school, and Native Girl Syndrome (2013), which exposes the marginalization and victimization of Indigenous women and the effects of cultural genocide. In 2017 the installation and performance piece This Time Will be Different, created in collaboration with Émilie Monnet, denounced the status quo of the Canadian government's discourse regarding First Nations and criticized the "national reconciliation industry."

About the Ashley Fellowship
The Ashley Fellowship is funded by a bequest from the late Professor C.A. Ashley, a long-time friend of Trent University and an enthusiastic proponent of the role which the informal contacts of College life can play in the academic pursuits of the University. The Ashley Fellow is therefore a visiting scholar and a guest in one of Trent's residential Colleges. By the terms approved by Senate in 1976, and in keeping with Professor Ashley's wishes, "scholar" should be broadly interpreted to include persons not necessarily holding an academic appointment.

The 2017-18 Ashley Fellowship is presented in partnership by:
Trent University Department of Political Studies
Trent University Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies
Champlain College
Peter Gzowski College
Catherine Parr Traill College
Public Energy
Bodies in Translation: Activist Art, Technology and Access to Life
Artspace

Lara Kramer wishes to acknowledge the financial support of:
Conseil des arts et des letters Quebec
Canada Council for the Arts

Artspace’s main gallery is physically accessible. Written and audio descriptions of the installation and performance will be available.
