Victoria-based Artist in Residence

Kemi Craig, residency

Kemi Craig is a film and dance artist living and working in the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ territories also known as Victoria, BC. In her practice, she uses community storytelling, images and movement to investigate embodiment and futures of eBIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) communities. Her performances and installations play with performance, expectations and critical spectatorship as a way of embedding audience engagement and subjectivity. A recent graduate of Emily Carr School of Art and Design with a Master of Fine Arts, Craig has continued her training and performance locally where she has collaborated on numerous projects with Dance Victoria, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Legacy and Flux Gallery. In 2020/21 Craig will be an artist in residence at Dance Victoria Studios, working with mentor Justine A. Chambers.
