Being Water

Being Water Water Being.

Being Water is a self-directed artists’ residency at ANIMA that will consider water issues in the Mazatepec region near Casa Rurale. Artists will meet with scientists and community groups to learn about the physical, social and political aspects of water in this region. Field trips, films, discussions, individual and collaborative studio projects and critiques will highlight the connections between art, science and ecology. Artists will be invited to respond in any media, reflecting on how we are individually and collectively connected to water and the streams, rivers and oceans that contain it on our planet. Depending on participant’s interest, a final group publication and/or exhibition may be possible in Mexico and Canada.
Susan Shantz is an artist and art instructor based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. She will facilitate and curate the residency and exhibitions with assistance from Saskatoon-based, water-science scholar, Graham Strickert (a founding member of the Global Institute for Water Security).
