Grieving Empire. Curated by Rachel Gorman.
Grieving Empire features six artists – Khadija Baker, Livia Daza-Paris, Michael Greyeyes, John Halaka, Siamak Haseli, Gita Hashemi – whose works reveal the violence of the settler colonial state, its imperialist adventures, and its proxy wars. The artists anchor their work in their bodies, on the land, and in unfolding transit and return. The works in this show reject aesthetics of postcolonial catharsis, in which we are asked to pity, and then purge our knowledge of imperialism's victims. Rather, these works animate aesthetics of revolutionary grieving, which demand that we "apprehend the policies creating unlivable, ungrievable conditions." (Byrd, 2011, 38). The works include animation for a child injured in the Syrian war created from the artist's cut hair (Khadija Baker); dance and ritual on the land where the artist's father was executed in 1960s Venezuela by state agents trained at the US School of the Americas (Livia Daza-Paris); site-specific dance moving through the past and present terror of Canadian residential schools (Michael Greyeyes); testimony of a Palestinian woman recounting the 1982 disappearance of her sons during the time of the Sabra and Shatila massacre (John Halaka); a child's nightmare of the Iraq war (Siamak Haseli); and postcards inscribing past and present exile sent from the artist's journey along the Balkan refugee trail (Gita Hashemi).
