Jessie Hill is one of the artists participating in Woodland Cultural Centre’s Virtual Face Mask Auction, Ga:hǫh ne’ hni’ ga:howe:kso/Covered and Uncovered. The auction is in response to the new realities created by the global coronavirus pandemic impacting so many Indigenous communities across the country, with 50% of proceeds shared with artists and 50% to support Woodland Cultural Centre programs, specifically School Visits & Educational Programming and Exhibitions.
Jessie Hill is a Wolf Clan Kanien’kehá:ka from the Six Nations territory. They are a hobbyist artist. This is the first exhibition they have submitted any visual work for. They primarily focus on writing amateur literature but chose to challenge themselves by creating this submission. They can only hope that their amateur skills will grow with continued projects.
“This mask is made in recognition of the manner in which some folk throughout the world have quite literally had to patch together new existences throughout the global pandemic. The materials are leather pieces and beads.”
