Archival Moments in an Ongoing Set of Power Relations
October 16–November 14, 1992
The video installation works with archival historical footage in a poetic haunting of history: three pink marble video monuments to remember buried moments in national and provincial policies (in particular in British Columbia) which continue to shape attitudes today. Although the legislation and policies restricting Asian immigration and taking away the vote from Asian Canadians and First Nations people have been changed — the attitudes remain. These video “dreams” address both the public and the private lives affected by these policies.
