About A Thread, a Thought, a Knot:
Chantel Mierau uses string, yarn and fabric as an integral component of printmaking, video, sculpture and other forms of image-making. A Thread, a Thought, a Knot uses basic sewing supplies to explore the process of thinking, especially moments of confusion, epiphany and rumination. Using multiple approaches, the artist seeks out parallels between knotted thread, and thought patterns.
Mierau is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Winnipeg, originally from Langham, Saskatchewan. She is an alumni of Rosthern Junior College and attended Canadian Mennonite University from 2003 to 2005. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Manitoba. In 2014, Mierau was nominated for the Winnipeg Arts Council's RBC On the Rise Award which recognizes the demonstrated promise of an emerging, professional Winnipeg artist in any discipline.
