Corinna Wollf (Métis)
Lives in Pettinengo, Italy
Corinna Wollf is a professional artist, pedestrian, art wanderer, and space maker who has lived a life of displacement from her ancestral lands. Born in Edmonton, moving often during her childhood, and residing in the Saskatoon inner city during her formative years and most of her adult life, Wollf relocated to Italy after completing her MFA at the University of Saskatchewan in 2016. Recipient of a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Masters Scholarship, Wollf’s graduate work focused on Métis aesthetics in contemporary art and her MFA thesis exhibit, Water Over the Bridge, combined large format drawing, printmaking, installation and beading. In 2019, Wollf exhibited her work in the province of Verona, Italy and in cities across Canada including Toronto, Halifax, Saskatoon, Vancouver, and Penticton. Through her artistic practise, Wollf explores identity, culture and place using beads, natural materials and words.
