Mary Anne Barkhouse was born in Vancouver, B.C. but has strong ties to both coasts as her mother is from the Nimpkish band, Kwakiutl First Nation of Alert Bay, B.C. and her father is of German and British descent from Nova Scotia. As a result of her personal and family experience with land and water stewardship, Barkhouse's work examines ecological concerns and intersections of cultre through the use of animal imagery.

Inspired by issues surrounding empire and survival, Barkhouse creates installations that evoke consideration of the self as a response to history and environment. She currently resides in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario.

 

Mary Anne Barkhouse's work is currently on view at Onsite Gallery, as part of the exhibition, How to Breathe Forever. How to Breathe Forever underlines the importance and interconnectedness of air, animals, coral, humans, insects, land, plants and water. The belief that everything in the universe has a place and deserves equal respect is the core of this exhibition and positions our relations with others — including the 'natural' world — as active and reciprocal. The artwork invites you to consider a personhood that attentively collaborates and exchanges with all living things.

Onsite Gallery is the flagship professional gallery of OCAD U and an experimental curatorial platform for art, design and new media. Visit our website for upcoming public events. The gallery is located at 199 Richmond St. W, Toronto, ON, M5V 0H4. Telephone: 416-977-6000, ext. 265. Opening hours are: Wednesdays from noon to 8 p.m.; Thursdays and Fridays from noon to 7 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Free admission.
