About the speaker
Marisa is an Ottawa-based visual artist whose practice spans sculpture, assemblage, site-specific installation, storytelling and arts advocacy. Her three-dimensional works explore repurposed materials, rhythmic forms and organic textures, acting as tactile monuments to our collective and subtle human experiences.
Motivated by the concept that every object carries its own history and energy, Marisa considers the selection process of materials as paramount. Found objects and discarded artifacts are favoured as much for their visual markings of time and wear as for their emblematic significance - either as souvenirs from a particular time period or as fossils of a lived, emotionally-charged experience. Old things tell stories.
That’s not all…
We’re excited to welcome local band, Harea to start off the night and we’ll wrap things off with some interactive activities to get the creative juices flowing.
