Performance by Jamie McDonald + Signy Holm as part of the Rita McKeough: Works - Publication Launch Event
Jaime McDonald is a queer Métis woman working toward her BFA at the Alberta College of Art + Design with a major in Media Arts. Her practice is primarily concerned with reclaiming and grasping onto her identity in a non-intersectional society. Focusing on her Indigenous heritage, her sexuality, and her mental health, McDonald works in a variety of media including documented and live performance, installation, sculpture, video, and sound. She uses feelings of nostalgia, longing, and confrontation to address the binaries she faces.
Signy Holm holds a Bachelors of Fine Arts with Distinction from the Alberta University of the Arts where she focused primarily on installation, performance and new media work. She is currently pursuing a career in arts administration and curatorial work while also dedicating time to her studio practice. Holm lives and works in Calgary, AB.
