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 and communities. 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. Her artwork can be seen on the cover of The Break by Katherena Vermette and she is represented by the Darrell Bell Gallery in Saskatoon. Corinna’s work is numerous public and private collections. Of Métis and Mennonite decent, her current work explores identity, culture and place using beads, natural materials and words. In 2018 she was named as a runner-up for the Canadian Art Writing Prize.
