Artist’s Statement & Bio:

This is where it was, and this is what I saw. This is what I see, and this is what’s there now.
Pointing The Finger #2 is a way to provide a voice for myself, my family and our land and homes that were destroyed to build the SW Calgary Ring Road AKA Tsuut’ina Trail.

Who is in charge and who is responsible?

Who do we celebrate and who do we listen to?

If I don’t speak up, how can people forget a history they were told never existed?

I am a multi-disciplinary artist and experimental musician that grew up on my family’s land in Tsuut’ina. My current practice is influenced by memory, place, trauma and the reconciliation between the three to reveal overwritten truths.
