This exhibition presents the ongoing performance-based collaborations of two best friends, Ayumi Goto and Peter Morin. Their work begins from their respective positions as a Japanese diasporic woman and a Tahltan First Nations man, questioning how cultural knowledge and history inform our experience of place. The school tour will weave together the traces of Goto and Morin’s collaborative performances that are present in the exhibition with significant solo projects from each artist. Often made in dialogue with one another, many of these works draw upon Goto and Morin’s different traditions and take the form of drums, rattles, masks or other cultural belongings. Students will view the artists’ paintings, writings, video and photography as a way to explore the concept of connecting to the land and each other.
