Dayna Danger

Tio'tia:ke - Moonyang, 2Spirit, Métis – Anishinaabe (Saulteaux) - Polish. (BFA, MFA)

Through utilizing the processes of photography, sculpture, performance and video, Danger creates works and environments that question the line between empowerment and objectification, by claiming the space with her larger than life works. Ongoing works exploring BDSM and beaded leather fetish masks address the complicated dynamics of sexuality, gender and power in a consensual and feminist manner. Danger has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in such venues as Latitude 53, Edmonton (AB); Urban Shaman, Winnipeg (MB); Warren G Flowers Art Gallery, Montréal (Québec); dc3 Projects, Edmonton (AB); Gallery 101, Ottawa (OT); Roundhouse, Vancouver (BC), and the New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe (NM). Danger has been the recipient of various grants, awards and honours including from the Winnipeg Arts Council, Manitoba Arts Council and Indspire, as well as participated in residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts and at Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art. Danger currently serves as a board member of the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective (ACC/CCA). Danger is an Artist in Residence through Initiative for Indigenous Futures at AbTeC.
