Ceramic Artist in Residence Serisa Fitz-James developed a new body of work during an exceptionally challenging year. In their solo-exhibition, We Can Ask for More, Serisa’s sculptural ceramic works explore the multiplicities of their Filipinx Settler-Canadian culture and identity. The sculptures visualize familiar forms of comfort, connection and pay homage to their pre-colonial heritage.
As an integral part of their work, Serisa committed time to unpack the intersectionality of their identity and understand life before colonization. Serisa’s therapeutic creative process explores their diasporic relationships with distant family, preserving their stories, the environment they use to live in, and what it means to be non-binary / gender non-conforming. Ceramics is an extension of Serisa’s self-care practice and it has given them a new sense of pride and worth in who they are and what they can accomplish.
