Manuel Axel Strain

MANUEL AXEL STRAIN  is a non-binary, 2-Spirit artist with Musqueam/Simpcw/Inkumupulux ancestry based in the stolen homelands of the Katzie/Kwantlen peoples. Creating artwork in collaboration with their kin and with reference to their lived experience becomes a source of agency that resonates through their work in performance, land, painting, sculpture, photography, video, sound, and installation. Strain’s recent works confront and undermine the realities and imaginaries of colonialism to propose a space beyond that matrix of power. They have worked with Capture Photography Festival, Vancouver Art Gallery, Surrey Art Gallery, and programming at Gallery Gachet.
