How we mark land and how land marks us, 2017
Performance by Tanya Lukin Linklater with Laura Ortman, Elisa Harkins and Hanako Hoshimi-Caines
Curated by Tania Willard for LandMarks 2017
Within Indigenous knowledges and understandings of treaty transmitted through orality, 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. In this residency, the artist gathered women together for rigorous conversation and practice in relation to the Saint Lawrence River, to land, and to one another for the development of a performance, an action on the land. Documentation by Neven Lochhead in Thousand lslands National Park, June 2017.
