Kaitlyn Jenna Dunsmore is a Scottish visual artist, based in Victoria, B.C, Canada. She Holds a First Class Honours Degree in Contemporary Art Practice from Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, Scotland and an MFA from the University of Victoria. She is an interdisciplinary artist, but primarily works within the realms of experiential installation. Her recent work critiques the role of social construction within schools of thought, language and perception. She was honoured to receive the Barnes-Graham Trust award (2015) and be a finalist for both the Suttie Art Award and the ENGIE E&P UK Ltd Scholarship. As an emerging artist, her work has been exhibited both across the UK and internationally, in locations such as Generator Projects (Dundee, Scotland), SWG3(Glasgow, Scotland), Ku-Ku-Kulubi (Tallinn, Estonia), The Menada (Macedonia) and the Audain Gallery (Victoria, Canada). Currently she is a teaching at the University of Victoria.

Reconcile develops out of an exploration of the constraints and allowances afforded by physical and virtual space. This body of work deconstructs and softens the ‘definite’ allowing at points for elements of the physical to slip into latency, while the ephemeral materialises. The installation consists of both physical and anamorphic manifestations, which exist in flux and reconcile through the movement of the viewer.


the fifty fifty arts collective is comprised of individuals living and working on unceded and occupied First Nations Territories, specifically the lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, as well as the W̱SÁNEĆ, Sc'ianew and T'Souke First Nations.

The programming space itself is situated on Songhees and Esquimalt Territory but engages with individuals and communities across Turtle Island.

As a collective we endeavour to deepen our own understandings of how we are implicated in the history and in the present ongoing project of settler colonialism. As members of the fifty fifty arts collective we continually responsibilize ourselves to the complex kind of space that is the fifty fifty which hosts and facilitates the dissemination of the ideas and work of others.
