ABOUT THE ARTIST

Casey Koyczan is a Tlicho Dene interdisciplinary artist from Yellowknife, NT, that implements culture and technology in his creations that have the ability to trigger numerous bodily senses by combining a variation of installation, sculpture, interactivity, new media, VR / 360, audio and performance.

Koyczan discovered sculpture and installation within his BFA and acquired an aesthetic of “nature reclaiming architectural space” by utilizing earth materials to create large-scale visions that communicate elements of environmentalism, societal awareness and experimentation. His artwork now spans through multiple genres and mediums in order to support his creations.

His artwork has been shown nationally and internationally, and has participated in many residencies, exhibits, festivals and collaboration projects in other parts of the world such as Finland, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, and The Netherlands.

Koyczan has a Multimedia Production Diploma from Lethbridge College, a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Thompson Rivers University, and is now within his first year of MFA studies at the University of Manitoba where he continues to build on his knowledge and skills while travelling to fulfill his art and music careers.

He is also a producer, actor, writer, teacher, workshop facilitator, and advocate for future generations of artists and musicians worldwide.  

 

Northern Sights is produced by Western Arctic Moving Pictures (WAMP) with funding from the Canada Council for the Arts. 

Presented at ALFF with support from Government of Yukon, Arts Fund.
