"Eco-Indian" and "Polygon"
Wanuskewin Heritage Park
January - April 2015
Artists: Michael Belmore, Amy Malbeuf, Mary Longman, Tanya Harnett, David Garneau, and Wally Dion
Eco-Indian is an exhibition that conjures up many images and is a play on both stereotypical notions of Aboriginal people as well as the highly complex nature that Aboriginal people have with their traditional territories. Five Aboriginal contemporary artists from varying territories were invited to interrogate the concept of Environment and their own particular worldviews and situated knowledge(s).
“Polygon,” an exhibit by Wally Dion references the sedimentary processes found in nature and in painting. Dion investigates how societies look backwards in time “digging an analyzing samples” to gain understand of present circumstances.
