Mindy Yan Miller
In FEED, Yan Miller takes a
familiar form and replaces one material for another. The hay bale: a
method of conserving and maximizing crop production, is reimagined as a
way of conserving and maximizing the (over) production of clothes.

Reception: April 15, 7:00 PM
Mindy Yan Miller is motivated as much by social relations as aesthetics.
Her art is rooted in fibre traditions. She frequently uses masses of
potent materials to produce large-scale installations. Materials like
human hair, animal hides, coke cans and used clothes. Her installations
address themes of labour, identity, loss, and commodification. Since
graduating from NSCAD University with a MFA in 1990, Mindy Yan Miller
has exhibited across Canada, Europe and United States.

imagination, talents and hard work of the City’s youth are celebrated
through this exhibition that represents schools from Prince Albert and
surrounding area. Creative expression allows individuals of all ages to
interpret the world around them and to express their concerns, dreams
and nightmares. The diversity of work featured in this exhibit
exemplifies the notion that inspiration comes in many forms and that art
and art making allows us to share our unique experiences with others.
