Yvonne Mullock is a graduate from The Glasgow School of Art and is currently located in Mohkinstsis/ Calgary, Alberta, Treaty 7 Territory. Her studio practice is multidisciplinary and spans interests in materiality and processes inherent in the act of making. Incorporating ceramics, sculpture, performance, video and textiles, Mullock’s work explores ideas of authorship, craft and labour for both gallery and site-specific installations.
During 2010-13 Mullock worked with Shorefast Foundation and Fogo Island Arts as lead artist for a community based quilt project. Working with artisans on both Fogo Island and Change Islands, this project reimagined traditional forms and techniques to furnish the Fogo Island Inn with locally made items that imbue the cultural customs and craft traditions of the region.
Mullock’s work includes: ‘Harmonia’ at The Esplanade, Medicine Hat, AB, curated by Xanthe Isbister; ’Gift-Love’, Manning Hall Commission at Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, curated by Lindsay Sharman; ExtraOrdinary Objects at the Glenbow Museum, curated by Sarah Todd; Alberta Foundation for the Arts International Studio Curatorial Program recipient New York, USA; Great Auk Sanctuary at the Museum of Flat Earth, curated by Kay Burns, Fogo Island, NL; Dark Horse at Stride Gallery, Calgary; Charrette Roulette – Homeworks Art Gallery of Alberta curated by Kristy Trinner, Edmonton; HIT & MISS at Esker Foundation Contemporary Art Gallery, Calgary; HOME ECONOMICS Textile Museum of Canada, Toronto.
