MAIN GALLERY
Joar Nango - Folding Forced Utopias, for you

Extending a body of research on Indigenous architecture, Joar Nango will present a new site-specific work that responds to histories of forced resettlement in arctic communities. Focusing on case studies from Canada, Greenland and Russia, the exhibition examines how architecture has been used as a tool in the colonial project and the global politics of northern resource extraction and sovereignty.
Presented in partnership with imagineNATIVE and the Royal Norwegian Embassy.
Support from Art Metropole, Sámi Art Council and the Inuit Studies Conference 2016.

Tsēma Tamara Skubovius - Ore Body
Ore Body investigates material and metaphysical landscapes from an embodied perspective, critiquing how valuation of land and resources are created and assessed through Western measures of wealth. Featuring a new series of large-scale lightboxes with images of multicoloured obsidian, a gem-like rock formed from cooling layers of lava found near Skubovius' family home in Northern BC, the exhibition explores bodily connections to land the impacts of resource extraction.
