Eko-bezhig Bagijigan, 2017

Copper, Dimensions Variable.

Eko-bezhig Bagijigan translates to stories as roots and is borrowed from Jill Doerfler's 2013 book Centering Anishinaabeg Studies: Understanding the World through Stories. This temporary installation reflects on the history of its site: Beausoleil Island.  The copper forms are story pods that absorb the narratives of the many peoples who have passed through the land since the beginning of time.  As a 4 day long intervention, this moving "landmark" took root across the island, quietly listening to the land. 

Eko-bezhig Bagijigan was part of the LandMarks 2017 Courses and Projects for Canada's 150th anniversary.
