A Pursuit of Unrelinquished Joy, 9:22 minutes, 2021  In this time-lapse video piece, Natalie King spends time in their Tkaronto studio creating works for upcoming projects. The paintings in this work are to address time/space/joy/absence and presence; a proactive measure to take up space and to be seen with respect andAnishinaabe pride. King believes the act of painting/creating is an act of radical resistance and joy, this work is about time and it’s limitless potential for joy and creation. Time is often used as a means of control in a world where our time is not valuedunless it is to maintain capital. Labour is an often unnoticed and unrecognized aspect of being a working artist. In this piece, King shares with the audience the process of creating these works, within all the fun, demands, work, and joys.
