Marisa Gallemit

Marisa Gallemit (she/her | Ottawa) – is a Filipina-Canadian visual artist. Informed by motherhood and third culture rituals, her work spans sculpture, assemblage, site-specific installation, storytelling, and arts advocacy. Since 2009 Marisa has been active in Ontario and Quebec with performative works, design installations for music + art festivals and art-making workshops; she has curated visual art programs for several non-gallery venues in Ottawa, and has produced a large-scale public art installation for the City of Mississauga. Through an ongoing exploration of found objects and potential energy, Gallemit’s practice leans deeply into Buckminster Fuller’s query: “Now how do we make this spaceship work?”
