Drawing upon imagery and symbols utilized in wampum belts, map-making, and existing in nature, Hannah Claus’ exhibition spatial codifications highlights ways of being in relationship with the world and those around us, as expressed through Onkwehon:we worldview. Through sensory engagement with a variety of mediums (material, video, light and shadow), her installations piece together an atemporal space that is distinct from Western ideologies and systems. Within her practice, relearning and engaging these relations are a means of navigating and embodying contemporary experience.

Hannah Claus is a multidisciplinary artist of English and Kanien’kehá:ka [Mohawk] heritage who has been living and working in Tiohtià:ke [Montreal] since 2001. She completed her undergraduate studies at the Ontario College of Art and Design (1998) and her Master’s of Fine Art at Concordia University (2004). Her work belongs to various public and private collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, the City of Montreal and the Department of Global Affairs. In 2018 Claus created a public art installation for Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. She is a recipient of the 2019 Eiteljorg fellowship. Claus is a member of the Tyendinaga Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, Ontario.
