Territoires partagés / Shared Lands

 9 novembre - 15 décembre 2013
Centre d'artistes Vaste et vague, Carleton sur mer, Québec.

Group residency and exhibition with Visual artists Nadia Myre, Jordan Bennett, Sonia Robertson. Writers/Witnesses: Caroline Loncol-Daigneault, Guy Sioui Durand. Curated by France Trépanier.

During the 10 day residency I completed two new works for the exhibition: Ugstaqamuit - the Mi'kmac word for "to be born" and also for the Earth, which translates to "This is where we are from". As well, I created a collaborative piece through different workshops in which participants drew me a "map" of how they see their personal territory. I filmed the act of drawing and edited the clips together into a 18 minute floor-projected video. In the final version, layers of drawings merge and flow in and out of each other.

Ugstaqamuit: Nous venons d'ici/This is where we are from, 2013.
