This season’s resident at La Ferme du Buisson is Canadian artist Sheena Hoszko.A sculptor and anti-prison activist, she lives and works in Tio’tia:ke (Montréal), in Kanien’kehá:ka territory. Her work is based on long-term research into the power dynamics of geographical, architectural and psychological sites, and is fuelled by her own family’s experience of migration and incarceration.
Hoszko’s project at La Ferme du Buisson is a concentrate of ten years of work and artistic, activist and academic engagement with the complex relationship between imprisonment, trauma and mental health. Her residency will centre on visits and meetings with caregivers working in prisons, migrant detention centres and psychiatric institutions. The result will be an ambitious site-specific work for the Take Care exhibition, as well as a series of workshops and encounters with the public.
