GABRIELLE L’HIRONDELLE HILL

BORN 1979, Comox, Canada
LIVES&WORKS On the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh peoples

For her installations, the artist chooses objects that carry meaningful references to the history of the colonisation of North America to show how the colonisers perverted what used to be the local significance of goods, land, and forcefully adapted it to new mores, thus stealing from and suppressing the local cultures. Tobacco is, in particular, the most significant of such items, due to its ancestral use by many of the native people of the Americas for their spiritual and physical well-being.
