* Deerlake Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Sunday from 12pm - 4pm / Fridays - 12 - 6pm

Being led forward, as if through an embrace or by a tender hand, visitors are invited to enter this exhibition as the artworks chart pathways forward. Prompted by the text Before Dispossession, or Surviving It[1], the exhibition responds to the call:

Am I telling you a story?

Make a map and not a tracing

Make a map and not a tracing


Collected here are a number of visual signifiers, forever connected to specific places, histories, memories, and constellations, that act as signposts. They chart the inextricable relationality of place with a firm yet shifting understanding of the past. Cartography (the practice of mapping), and closely linked systems of legislation, have been used to fragment story and people from place. May we propose a reading of land, sky, and waters that cannot be untied from memory. May we consider what it means to hold, to carry, and to in turn be held.

Featured artists: Afuwa, Zoe Cire, Melody Markle and jaz whitford

Curated by Emily Dundas Oke
