Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Skubovius, Tamara
Abstract:

LAND|MINE actively deconstructs and (re)constructs linkages to the LAND that connects city spaces to the constructed wild, materials to mine sites, and bodies to the LAND.

“This investigation grapples with the body, my body as it has witnessed material and metaphysical landscapes changing and continually impacted, shaken and consumed by corporate resource extraction. I critique how the value of land and natural resources are created and assessed through Western measures-of-wealth (social, economic, environmental, power, ownership) and how these types of evaluations impact traditional and contemporary cultural production in the Canadian wilderness, which is still considered an untapped frontier for natural resources. This project is sparked by strategies of Indigenous resistance to neo-colonization, the embodied knowledge and everyday acts of decolonization as ways to understand the imaginary Canadian true-north and industrial reverberations felt by those who live downstream.” — Tsēma
