A sculptural and photographic installation

LandMarks installation showcases works from faculty and students at SFU’s School of Contemporary Arts, in collaboration with LandMarks2017/Repères2017. These works actively engage audiences to critically examine Canada at 150 while offering a legacy of diverse perspectives for the future.

Internationally celebrated contemporary artist, SFU School of Contemporary Arts faculty, and Grange Prize nominee Jin-me Yoon’s latest work Long View is brimming with the questions so many of us share — questions of migration, belonging and our place within nature. Long View the postcard version unfolds at at the site of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, a place to ponder past, present and future relations between Canada, Indigenous peoples and elsewhere across the Pacific. The video version of Long View is available for viewing on the LandMarks2017 website. In the Laboratory Landscape series, SFU’s visual art students address Stanley Park’s Indigenous and colonial histories and present, as well as its social function as an urban park and its ecological context. Through site-specific installations and performative events, the works explore contemporary environmental issues, representations of nature, and spatial concepts, including notions of public and social space. Colonial Site, a collaboration between graduate and undergraduate students overseen by faculty member Sabine Bitter, takes the shape of a topographical site map of Vancouver. Featuring counter-archives of vernacular images and micro-histories, this work seeks to uncover the traces- tangible and intangible- of colonialism in our everyday lives.

Long View Artist: Jin-me Yoon Curator: Kathleen Ritter Laboratory Landscape Faculty: Sabine Bitter
