MOMENTA BIENNALE DE L’IMAGE | OF THE LAND
From September 8 to October 24, 2021.
Galerie de l’UQAM is pleased to host an exhibition in collaboration with MOMENTA Biennale de l’image as part of its 17th edition, entitled “Sensing Nature.” In Of the Land, artists Carolina Caycedo, Taloi Havini, Tsema Igharas and Erin Siddall, Kama La Mackerel, Miriam Simun and Eve Tagny address human connections to land.
The “Sensing Nature” edition of MOMENTA is rooted in two complementary notions: nature that senses and humans sensing nature. In this biennale, we are making room for “other” perspectives so that we may reach more sensitive forms of cohabitation.
The artists in Of the Land, more specifically, are concerned with our destructive relationships with surroundings seen as a supposedly inexhaustible “other” and the way that colonial seizing of territory has disrupted ancestral relations with the land. In this exhibition, ecology is considered beyond the natural, as the artists explore gendered and racialized stereotypes compounded with the commodification of nature.
Curating: Stefanie Hessler in collaboration with Camille Georgeson-Usher, Maude Johnson, and Himali Singh Soin
Artists: Carolina Caycedo, Taloi Havini, Tsema Igharas and Erin Siddall, Kama La Mackerel, Miriam Simun, Eve Tagny
