Event Description

"I especially enjoy making collages with Japanese papers, and for the past year have envisioned a collection of banners made of long, delicate and whispery sheets floating gracefully from bamboo rods and incorporating the iconography of the salmon image. Ultimately however, the properties of the paper itself dictated how the design should go: its delicacy or sturdiness, its dimensions, pattern and colour, all had final say in what I made.

In the making of the banners I have been learning as I go, and have been inspired not only by the papers but by the theme of the concurrent exhibition When Two Waters Meet. With respect and gratitude for that inspiration, I present my first installation – Swimming with the Ancestors, (an Homage)." –Marianne Goodrich


Marianne Goodrich is a multimedia artist specializing in collage, assemblage and illustration. Her art practice benefits from the influence of both contemporary and classic artists, and she is inspired by the global art community as well as her proximity to the ocean. Marianne works out of her home studio in James Bay. Her art can be seen at www.mariannegoodrich.com and on Instagram @mariannegoodrich1650.

Special thanks to my Project Assistant, Marian Paris, who made so much more possible, and to Dean Goodrich, for creating a schematic for the installation layout in the Vault.

And many thanks for the valuable assistance of (in alphabetical order): Anna Harvey, Brenda Fox, Connor McKinnon, Doug Mikasko, Kai Choufour, Kegan McFadden, Lori Lautermilch, Opus Art Supplies, Patricia Nichols, Susie Hammond, Victoria Arts Council, Vivian Scheff
