LandMarks2017/Repères2017 "Park Life": Interventions in Public Space organized by Queen's University
11-18 June, 2017 | Reception 16 June (11am-1pm)
Curated by Tania Willard + Carina Magazzeni


How we mark land and how land marks us is a performance by Tanya Lukin Linklater in Thousand Islands National Park with Laura Ortman, Elisa Harkins and Hanako Hoshimi-Caines


Artist Statement:

Within Indigenous understandings of treaty, as fixed through orality, the treaty is held within the body and speaks to our ancestors’ agency and sovereignty, to the land, to sharing, and to a sense of urgent futurity. Thinking through an embodiment of treaty, this collaborative performance will feature scores that develop over the course of the artists’ residency, unfolding into a sensorial experience.
