distance

distance is about reflecting on the past and thinking through the histories of displacement forced upon First Nations within the Vancouver area, histories that are directly tied to my family and their effects lingering through the generations. distance is not only an interpretation of physical distance but also distance in time and memory. The memories of these moments live within the land, our bodies and spirit. distance is a personal interpretation of the past, an imagining and sentiment to what it must have felt like to live through these forcible acts of genocide and to acknowledge and honour those I love and those affected.
