Roewan Crowe: digShift

Roewan Crowe: digShift Roewan Crowe


In this series of video poems the artist enters into a fatal and toxic landscape. She labours, digging deep into the personal, historical and environmental layers of the land, to perform a reclamation in collaboration with this wounded terrain.


Roewan Crowe, trans-disciplinary artist, is energized by acts of disruption, transformation, and the tactical deployment of self-reflexivity. She recently published Quivering Land, a rather queer Western, that engages with poetics to reckon with legacies of violence and colonization. She is an Associate Professor at the University of Winnipeg.
