ayumi goto and peter morin: how do you carry the land?

July 14 - October 28, 2018

Artists: Ayumi Goto and Peter Morin with Corey Bulpitt, Roxanne Charles, Navarana Igloliorte, Cheryl L'Hirondelle, Haruko Okano and Juliane Okot-Bitek.

Ayumi Goto & Peter Morin: how do you carry the land? is an exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery that presents the performance art and ongoing collaborations of Ayumi Goto and Peter Morin. Their work begins from thinking through their respective positions as a Japanese diasporic woman and Tahltan First Nations man both in terms of deep ancestral knowledges and the way in which their identities and experiences are inscribed by colonialism. Grounded in explorations related to the land, Goto and Morin ask how cultural knowledge and history inform our experience of place, and challenge us to seek new formations.
