In the summer of 2022, Natt Cann participated in a residency with the Calgary Allied Arts Foundation's (CAAF) to find what fuels the sprawling city of Calgary, Alberta, a bustling place of quiet modernity within western Canada and the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation. This was to be a new body of work entirely separate from current material, something livelier than the current lonesomeness of the Atlantic. Not that Nat was seeking a relationship to the east coast as the city is far too big to pinpoint anything that particular. What blossomed, perhaps in vain, was a similarity to previous projects wherein towering pillars of residence, commerce and capitalized prospect were found to be upheld by the local establishments and a startling amount of coffee. Using the very same products used to fashion these buildings both in construction and décor, Fuel is an inspection of glass pillars built atop localized establishments and the people, things, and actors who dwell between such venues.
