“Mother/Land” features eight international artists whose work for this exhibition focuses on the relationship between land and people, reflecting the artists’ observations on displacement. Each of us has a motherland. However, we are not mindful of it in times of peace. It is a symbolic land, a shared imaginary place that forms part of our identity. In times of crisis, however, “motherland” helps bring together individuals experiencing the hardships of forced migration caused by human or ecological disasters, colonization, poverty, etc. This powerful concept provides the nation with a home, a site charged with sentimentalism and nostalgia.

By Nicholas Galanin and Christian J. PetersenThe creation of the prints are a visage to over 10,000 years of indigenous creativity here on the Northwest Coast in America. The motions of creating these images explode, reference and mimic visual movements of a customary Tlingit aesthetic. A creative continuum that is put into tangible form through traditional existence on this land. The static monotype print is a stellar remnant of what is left, its decay, interpretation and or consumption slowly warped through perspective and collaboration is ‘Where Did It Go’.
