In this studio visit and interview, Toronto artist Allyson Mitchell speaks to Canadian Art editor Richard Rhodes about her upcoming exhibition “Ladies Sasquatch” at the McMaster Museum of Art (it opens January 29 and runs to March 21). In recent years Mitchell, a York University professor in both women’s studies and fine arts, has made increasingly large-scale sculptural figures that marry elements of feminist theory with neocraft and fun fur. The new sculptures for her touring show are no exception. As Mitchell says, “Lady Sasquatch is your dream girl, only bigger and hairier—and she might eat you if you don't look out.” (Video running time 7 minutes 26 seconds)
