Materials: Poplar and Graphite
Exhibition: All Flesh is Grass: A Post-Memorial (2021)
Intervention at Pier 21, Immigration Museum, Halifax, Canada
Accompanying the structures that house the frottages are survey monuments sculpted from graphite. Created as two sets; one set contains geodetic data used to identify a mass gravesite in Chroberz, Poland, while the other set contains GPS coordinates that identify locations attributed to nation building in Canada. This work is a speculative cartographic tool that is designed to assemble and juxtapose data from sites of difficult history in Kjipuktuk and Poland.
