Abstract (English)

Catalogue to accompany an exhibition of installations by four contemporary First Nations artists. Hill’s interpretation of the artists’ works focuses on Aboriginal peoples’ relation with the land. Human and animal reactions to social, environmental and technological change are considered, as well as issues of identity, place and nature. Deadman’s curatorial essay addresses notions of territory and survival, as well as questions concerning First Nations land-claims and self-government. Her analysis of the symbols, materials and technologies used by the artists shows how First Nations cultural values differ from those of the West. Includes statements by the artists. List of works. Biographical notes. 3 bibl. ref.
