Corinna Wollf is a professional artist, pedestrian, art wanderer, and space maker who has lived a life of displacement and detachment from her ancestral lands. Born in Edmonton, moving often during her childhood, and residing in the Saskatoon inner city during her adolescent years and most of her adult life, Corinna relocated to Italy after completing her MFA at the University of Saskatchewan in 2016, and there she lives and creates. Recipient of a Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Masters Scholarship, Corinna’s graduate work focused on Métis aesthetics in contemporary art and her MFA thesis exhibit, Water Over the Bridge, combined large format drawing, printmaking, installation and beading. In 2016 Wollf co-founded, along with David Garneau, Noo Nipow, a Métis Contemporary art collective who gathers to create, discuss, celebrate, and exhibit Métis Contemporary art. Wollf’s artwork can be seen on the cover of The Break by Katherena Vermette and she is represented by the Darrell Bell Gallery in Saskatoon. Her artwork has been acquired by numerous public and private collections and was featured in the Winter 2019 issue of Grain Magazine. A Métis and Mennonite woman, her current work explores identity, culture and place using beads, natural materials photography and performance.
