First Nations (Flathead Salish) / US Artist- Performance Art, Visual Art
Roin Morigeau (b. Oct 24, 1984) is an interdisciplinary artist using drawing, painting, poetry, and sculpture to explore the dichotomy between matriarchal and patriarchal space. Living with physical limitations and daily chronic pain from a spinal injury, Roin centers their art practice as a form of protest and healing. Producing minimal yet powerful abstract works, Roin explores the feeling of “in-betweenness” they experience as a queer, disabled, gender non-binary person raised in a bi-cultural home. Roin was nominated for the 2019 Centrum Emerging Artist Residency Program and has shown in numerous shows and exhibitions regionally including King St. Station at Seattle Office of Arts + Culture, Terrain Gallery, and the Chase Gallery at Spokane City Hall. They are a member of Spokane-based The PORTAL Collective and a 2018-2019 sponsored member of Saranac Art Projects. Roin is a descendant of the Flathead Salish Tribe of Montana and lives in occupied Spokane territories where they were raised.
