AlterNation suggests an alternative approach to the consideration of Canada and the embracing of multiple perspectives towards our shared history. It is an acknowledgement of the many alternative nations that have existed within this country, while also suggesting a fluctuation between those various histories. In logic and mathematics, alternation is defined as “inclusive disjunction,” a term that metaphorically encompasses the ways that Canada has endeavoured to be a bastion of multicultural democracy, but has at times failed to live up to those ideals.


Identity and Belonging

June 2017, Anima Casa Rural, Mexico
Accepted into a thematic art Resdidency hosted by Fernando Manuel Escárcega Pérez. (https://fershow.carbonmade.com) This residency is of interest to those who are interested in concepts such as equity, equality and belonging. We are interested in supporting the development of these social concepts as essential tools that allow us to express ourselves in both the local and personal context. We are interested in values, spiritual belonging and heritage that help to build relationship. Also of interest is belonging to specific social groups and across difference.
