Tanya Lukin Linklater's Choreography of Space

by Kari Cwynar

Inuit Art Quarterly, 2916, v. 29.2, pp. 29-35

This article details the work of Tanya Lukin Linklater and her art in relation to objects, stories and how people (specifically Indigenous bodies) relate to space within her work. Born in Alaska and now northern Ontario based, Linklater is a choreographer who seamlessly goes between various mediums in art such as performance art, video, poetry and installation to discuss authorship.

This article pays special attention to her work at UBC, a crowd-sourced installation with sacred objects to advocate for negotiations between the federal government and Indigenous peoples.
