Identity, global conflict, and trauma — nichola feldman-kiss has explored these issues throughout her artistic practice, which spans well over two decades. Her latest exhibition, witness, traces the progression of her career, from her early examination of the artistic process to a 2012 trip to war-torn Sudan, which had a lasting influence on her work. The exhibition comprises three separate installations: childish objects, a collection of items that reflect feldman-kiss’s earliest thoughts about art; after Africa, a video triptych on the subject of geopolitical violence; and her latest work, between here and there, which explores issues surrounding the international bone trade. On display at Ottawa Art Gallery until Feb. 7, 2016. —Amy Allen
