Abstract

This study into my creative process as an artist is based on a qualitative analysis of my artmaking process. It focuses on the production of a body of artwork and the subsequent exhibition, "The Archaeology of Memory," which opened in Montreal on August 22, 2002 at Galerie Gora. Using the theme of memory and narrative, culled from artefacts such as family photograph albums, heirlooms, and journal accounts, I investigate the layers of meaning that form personal identity. My insights grow broader as I examine the construction of a national identity through the notion of "collective memory." The purpose of this exploration is also to demonstrate how the 'praxis' of art making and exhibiting, may inform and revitalize the teaching practice of art educators.
