CURRICULUM VITAE

Biographie

Nathalie Bertin est une artiste multidisciplinaire de Toronto, Ontario, Canada, dont les racines sont documentées dans le Michilimackinac & Nipissing. Elle est d'ascendance métisse, française, anishinaabe et omàmiwininiwak (alias algonquin). Bertin est membre du Waawaashkeshi (clan du cerf).

Le style artistique de Bertin est souvent décrit comme luminescent, énergique, audacieux et coloré. Elle se dit "accro aux couleurs" et s'inspire de la façon dont la lumière filtre à travers les vitraux, de la superposition des couleurs dans les procédés d'impression, des artistes de Woodland et des maîtres d'Europe du Nord.

Le travail actuel de Bertin se concentre sur les images positives des peuples indigènes comme moyen de confronter leurs représentations romancées telles que vues à travers l'histoire de l'art. Elle se concentre en particulier sur les modèles féminins qui ont eu un impact sur elle. Son objectif est de présenter une vision différente des peuples indigènes - une vision positive, puissante, bien informée, douce et gentille.

Plusieurs des projets de Bertin s'inspirent également des récits traditionnels. En 2018, Bertin a obtenu une bourse de projet du Conseil des arts de l'Ontario pour la création d'une série de "Mocoussins©" perlés qui interprètent des histoires traditionnelles pour les générations futures. Ce projet l'a amenée à auto-publier son livre bilingue "Loup Garou, Mocassins et folklore métis / Loup Garou, moccasins et folklore métis" en 2020. Le projet est prévu pour une exposition en 2021 et 2022.

Auparavant, certaines des illustrations du récit de Bertin sur les aurores boréales ont été reproduites par la Monnaie royale canadienne sur des pièces de collection en 2013, 2014 et 2015. Elle a également été sélectionnée pour concevoir une série spéciale de pièces sur les sept enseignements du grand-père, pour laquelle elle a obtenu un soutien massif de sa famille, de ses amis et de ses aînés Anishinaabe.

En 2012, Nathalie Bertin a créé et organisé "This is My Song" : Perspectives from Contemporary Native Women" à The Art Space, Huntsville, Ontario. Les artistes participantes étaient Kayeri Akweks, Lee Claremont, Raven Davis, Lee Deranger, Lita Fontaine, LauraLee K Harris, Inuk360, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Janice Toulouse. L'exposition devait présenter des artistes indigènes contemporains et se voulait un forum de discussion pour combler le fossé entre les peuples indigènes et non indigènes.

Dans la même veine, en 2014, Bertin a été le commissaire de "Indigenesse" au centre culturel Aurora, à Aurora, en Ontario. Extrait de la déclaration des artistes: "Indiginesse est le point culminant de l'œuvre de femmes artistes autochtones contemporaines et courageuses qui travaillent à offrir des soins, une éducation et à informer toutes les communautés. Puisse cette exposition apporter plus de compassion, de compréhension, de santé et de paix alors que nous cherchons tous à offrir des soins responsables à toutes nos nombreuses communautés". Les artistes participantes étaient Kayeri Akweks, Christi Belcourt, Lee Claremont, Raven Davis, Alyssa Delbaere-Sawchuck, Lee Deranger, Lita Fontaine, LauraLee K Harris, Maria Hupfield, Nadya Kwandibens, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Shelley Niro, Janice Toulouse.

Ces expériences curatoriales continuent de pousser Nathalie à développer des projets communautaires. En 2020, Bertin a co-créé "Breathe. Une collection de masques traditionnels démontrant la résilience face à la pandémie du 21e siècle" avec son amie et artisane Lisa Shepherd. Le projet a débuté sous la forme d'un groupe Facebook dans le but d'aider les artistes à travailler sur les émotions provoquées par la pandémie. Il a fait l'objet de trois articles de la CBC, d'un documentaire de la CBC Arts et d'expositions prévues pour 2021 au Canada et aux États-Unis. Un programme scolaire a également été élaboré en collaboration avec Colinda Clyne, responsable de l'éducation des Premières nations, des Métis et des Inuits.

Dans le cadre de son engagement envers la communauté, Nathalie Bertin travaille également dans le domaine de l'éducation en tant qu'artiste invitée et gardienne du savoir. En 2019, elle a collaboré avec la Première nation Beausoleil et le parc provincial de Springwater pour créer une installation artistique qui servirait de catalyseur pour l'enseignement des modes de connaissance indigènes. Bertin visite également de nombreuses écoles dans plusieurs conseils scolaires anglophones et francophones de la province pour animer divers ateliers sur les arts métis. Depuis 2017, elle est également devenue partenaire communautaire et co-présentatrice du "First Nations and Métis Math Voices Project" (Dr. Ruth Beatty, Lakehead University), de la "Indigenous Education and Mathematics Conference" (Dr. Ruth Beatty, Lakehead University) et du "Culturally Responsive Math, First Nations & Metis Math Voices" (Nelson PL Series Winter 2020). Bertin a également créé "Project : Odemin" comme moyen de collecte de fonds pour les projets communautaires éducatifs qui ont besoin d'aide pour démarrer.

En plus de nombreux projets d'illustration de livres et d'art commercial, les œuvres de Nathalie Bertin font partie des collections du gouvernement du Manitoba, du gouvernement de l'Alberta, d'organisations d'entreprises et de collectionneurs privés au Canada, aux États-Unis, en Europe et en Afrique.
