Alice Williams, Brad Copping
Anishinaabe artist Alice Williams (Curve Lake First Nation) and glass and sculpture artist Brad Copping have created an immersive installation of blown glass, textile, sound, and projection. The vibrant greens of springtime frame envelop the ceiling, light catches a cascade of glass droplets suspended in their fall towards blown vessels full of water, atop quilted medicine wheels. The sound of rain through trees plays as voices speak the names of water in its various forms in Anishinaabemowin and English. By bringing the outside in to this space originally constructed for educating the next generation acknowledges the long tradition of King George Public School’s work to provide specialized environmental and nature-based programs and the intention of Erring itself, bringing unoccupied spaces to life.
