Peter Morin is a grandson of Tahltan ancestor artists. He has now lived away from his home territory for most of his life, but like his ancestors who have walked on the land, he carries Tahltan knowledge, ideas and history with him wherever he is. Every step along the way, Tahltan knowledge has guided his researching, dreaming, learning, making of the past twenty years of artistic and curatorial practice. Ideas and artwork can travel and bodies are their can be a vehicles for ideas to travel. The Tahltan Nation is currently comprised of three communities located in british columbia: Iskut, Dease Lake, and Telegraph Creek. The Tahltan Nation territory is 3857. 06 kms from Peter’s current home Toronto ON. Tahltan leaders signed a Declaration of Independence from canada on Oct 18, 1910. Morin began art school in 1997, completing his Bachelor of Fine Arts at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver in 2001 and his Masters in Fine Arts in 2010 at the University of British Columbia-Okanagan. Initially trained in lithography, Morin’s artistic practice moves from printmaking to poetry to installation to performance art. Peter is the son of Janelle Morin (Crow Clan, Tahltan Nation) and Pierre Morin (Quebecois). Peter was given the Tahltan name Ezeck-Tah by his grandmother Dinah Creyke when he turned 13. Throughout his exhibition and making history, Peter has focused upon his matrilineal inheritances in homage to the matriarchal structuring of the Tahltan Nation. Morin was longlisted for the Brink and Sobey Awards, in 2013 and 2014, respectively. In 2016, Morin received the Hnatyshyn Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement by a Canadian Mid-Career Artist. Morin currently holds a tenured appointment in the Faculty of Arts at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto.
