it’s not about the land
This project does not presuppose a homogenous postcolonial victim and invites consideration of the geopolitical realities of an Apache community in San Carlos Arizona. Renegotiation of the contradictory myths and what might be called history of the people, landscape and politics without a particular agenda is being developed. The challenge is to allow the complexity of the material shape a point of view.
Utilizing large and medium format photography, video and in situ installations that include remnants of the desert community landscape, it’s not about the land not only explores the complexities of the Apaches’ relationship with the land but also an outsider’s position.
The exhibition it’s not about the land was shown in Hoxton Arches Gallery, London UK from November 3rd – 7th , 2016.
