Morgan Possberg | Calgary, Alberta
Morgan Possberg grew up in Calgary, Alberta and spent a large part of their childhood in Shediac, New Brunswick. They received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with a focus in Textiles / Fashion from NSCAD University in Halifax in 2019, and subsequently attended the University of Calgary for a Master of Architecture Degree. Morgan works with primarily local, sustainable materials such as birchbark and locally spun yarn, and technique intensive processes to create works that capture the modern Two-spirit Indigenous experience in Canada; an experience which is fraught with disconnections and gaps. Through their work, Morgan creates alternate stories to fill the gaps with a focus on capturing inner truth and alternate possibilities.
