LandMarks 2017/ Repères 2017

“Traces”, Park Life: Interventions in Public Space, Mallory Town Landing, Thousand Islands National Park for LandMarks 2017/Repères 2017 curated by Tania Willard and Carina Magazzeni.

        Traces is a performance that embodies acts of self-reflection, acknowledgement, and responsibility to the land. The performance and its remnants are exhibited in disparate locations, and in turn waver between being both invasive and reasonably unintrusive. By tracing the lifeline scars of the emerald ash borer through charcoal transfers, I am completing my own survey of infected trees at Mallorytown Landing, while also referencing connections between unreconciled histories of colonial expansion and pressing conservation issues. Another component to Traces (2017) is on temporary display at Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre, Kingston, ON.

“Park Life”: Interventions in Public Space, Mallorytown Landing, Thousand Islands National Park | Queen’s University graduate student works from Dr. Dylan Robinson’s LandMarks2017/Repères2017 course

16-18 June, 2017 | Opening Launch 16 June (all day)

Curated by Tania Willard and Carina Magazzeni

This series of works by Queen’s University graduate students addresses “unmarked” histories and prioritizations of space within the national park setting through sense-driven engagements, performances, and temporary installations. Each interventionary work represents and re-imagines various acts of visiting – with the land, stories and relations at Thousand Islands National Park.
