Boxing News 1994

Winnipeg CBC Television Sports News

In 1995 Kirouac began boxing at a Winnipeg boxing club. This decision inspired a Canada Council Research and Creation grant that took her to Paris, France; Bristol, England; and Rotterdam, Netherlands for eighteen months, where Kirouac trained and researched her position as a classic boxer in various European boxing clubs. Upon her return to Canada, Kirouac translated these experiences using her own actions and body, into several interdisciplinary works examining stereotypes, sexuality, expectations, violence, power and vulnerability, spanning the next eight years.
