Eruoma Awashish


    The Atikamekw artist Eruoma Awashish holds a BA in Interdisciplinary Arts from the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi. Her artistic approach aims to create spaces for dialogue to facilitate the understanding of First Nations culture. Having lived in the Opitciwan, Wemotaci, and Mashteuiatsh communities, Eruoma Awashish has a strong sense of belonging to her culture. Her work speaks of “métissage” and metamorphosis and is imbued with spirituality, symbolism, and syncretism. In 2018, she participated in BACA (Contemporary Native Art Biennial) and presented an installation at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
