Shania Thompson: Inherited Resilience – Chokecherry Youth Response
In response to Allen Sapp’s Grandmother with Medicine Bag 1969
Gave me strength, wisdom to know
Heal for our children.
– Haiku by Shania Thompson
About the project: Chokecherry Youth Response is a partnership project between Chokecherry Studios, Remai Modern and PAVED Arts. The project asked for submissions from youth-artist participants inspired by a single work in the exhibition, An apology, a pill, a ritual, a resistance. Ten emerging artists took on the challenge and got to work creating new pieces that respond to the exhibition’s multifaceted exploration of health and healing.
