Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Miller, Courtney
Abstract:

(re)mapping, grounding, remembering explores how the concept of (re)mapping is communicated in Indigenous contemporary artwork to demonstrate place-making methods and maintain Indigenous presence on land/landscape. (Re)mapping indicates Indigenous perceptions of and connections to ancestral land/landscape through themes of responsibility, reciprocity, place-based language, and intergenerational knowledges. This thesis project involves an
exhibition featuring the artworks of Anishinaabe artist Bonnie Devine, Blackfoot/Cree artist Richelle Bear Hat, and Métis artist Katherine Boyer. Through literal, symbolic, and discursive gestures of mapping, the artists contribute to a conversation of re-writing histories, shared memories, complex and enduring relationships pertaining to homeland.
