THINKING OF YOU enacts a site of mourning and calls for justice as we continue to learn about Canada’s Indian Residential School System and the impact of genocide on Indigenous peoples and communities as settler colonialism continues to unfold in Canada. Presented outdoors, on screens facing the Deshkan Ziibi/Thames River at the Centre at the Forks, Museum London, these images reference the Medicine Wheel teachings, the interconnectivity between all things—a source of healing, of medicine that is both spiritual and physical. The exhibition has gathered new meaning after the remains of 215 Indigenous children were found in a mass grave at the Kamloops Residential School in British Columbia.
This exhibition will be screened between sunset and sunrise.
In constellation with this exhibit, a window display at SATELLiTE Project Space 151 Dundas features Shelley Niro’s poem “HOME” and her T-Shirt “The Wild Ones And The Colonized”. Originally sold (in white) during UPwithART 2021, this new limited-edition T-Shirt in black can be yours for $50 with proceeds benefitting Unity Project and Museum London.
