About Ashley Bedet
In 2015 Ashley Bedet came back to Mohkinstsis/Calgary, where she was born, after studying art in some manner or another in Vancouver (Emily Carr University of Art + Design), Halifax (NSCAD University), and Amsterdam (Gerrit Rietveld Academie). Her work has been disseminated through sculpture, installation, publication, radio, and multiples via the 2017 Alberta Biennial; public commissions from cREative realm, Calgary; Contemporary Calgary; TELUS Spark Science Centre, Calgary; and The Bows, Calgary. Bedet is the product of many very different worlds reproducing, meeting differences, and then reproducing again. She is to a braid what string is to thread. Bedet’s work has been supported through funding from Calgary Arts Development, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and private patrons.
