Jordan  Bennett

I am a multi-disciplinary visual artist of Mi’kmaq heritage from Stephenville Crossing Newfoundland. Through the processes of sculpture, painting, digital media, installation, sound installation and other mediums my work explores observations and influences from historical and popular culture, new media, traditional craft and cultural practice to convey connection to land; the act of visiting,  and my familial histories. My current body of work utilizes painting, carving, projection, photography and sound to challenge perceptions of indigenous histories, stereotypes and presence with a particular focus on exploring Mi’kmaq and Beothuk visual culture of Ktaqamkuk, Newfoundland.

Jordan Bennett is a Mi’kmaq visual artist from Ktaqamkuk, Newfoundland.
