Open creation residency | Diyar Mayil and Joliz Dela Peña at Galerie d'Outremont
The Outremont district and La Centrale galerie Powerhouse are collaborating to offer an open creation residency at la Galerie d’Outremont to two Montréal artists. Meet the creative processes of Diyar Mayil and Joliz Dela Peña, and discover this first project of visual arts residency in the Outremont district.
Diyar Mayil is an artist working in sculpture, installation and performance. She addresses issues of comfort, discomfort, adaptation and acceptance of different bodies in public and private contexts. She is the Laureate for the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship (2022) in Contemporary Art and the recipient of the Liz Crockford Award (2023). Her work has been supported by Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des arts de Montréal and has been shown at La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse, Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, NARS Foundation in NYC, Centre Clark and Circa Art Actuel in Montreal. Upcoming commitments include solo exhibitions at Articule and FOFA Gallery in Montreal. Originally from Istanbul, she now lives and works in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal.
Joliz Dela Peña, also known as JDP 2009, is a self-taught interdisciplinary artist from the Philippines, currently based in Tiohtià:ke. Intimate connection to memories, identity and immigration are recurring themes in Dela Peña’s practice. Through performance accompanied by installations, she pursues to relive realities, explore its complexities, and translate invisible tension/s into various visual and tactile qualities. In recent works, she attempts to translate fragmented memories from her personal life as first-generation immigrant, as well as borrowed from others, to create a larger and more universal perspective for the audience to relate or connect to.
