Davis Curtis (Dawson City)
David Curtis is a commercial fisher, carpenter and artist who has had the honour and privilege of living within the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Traditional Territories for the past 23 years.
David’s film installations focus on exploring poetic and associative possibilities through form, subject and meaning; especially in relation to our lived experiences of happenstance, kairos and chance. The open ended nature of his films are predicated on the idea that poetry, passion and humility are not only important to being human, but essential to our survival.
While in the residency David will be working on a new series of short films projected within sculptural installations for his ongoing series “Search Though We Might We May Never See Beyond the Horizon of Our Imagination.”
