Connie Michele Morey is an artist whose studio practice explores the experience of home as ecological interdependence. Through site-specific performative sculptures made primarily of reclaimed wood and repurposed wool blankets, her recent work Project Homesick and Roof (Over My Head) questions the relationships between displacement, primary resource mis/management, labour and housing. Her work is influenced by childhood experiences living rurally off the land, while being surrounded by family traditions of masonry, construction and textiles. She holds a BFA in Visual Arts from the University of Lethbridge, an M.Ed. in Community-Based Art Education and a Studio-Based PhD from the University of Victoria. She teaches two and three-dimensional art at the University of Victoria and Camosun College and facilitates an artist mentorship program in collaboration with arc.hive gallery and Errant artSpace. She has exhibited and performed across Canada, Europe and Southeast Asia.
