In Solidarity. Malinda Francis, Rehab Nazzal. Presented by A Space Gallery in partnership with Trinity Square Video. In Solidarity features collaborative projects from Malinda Francis and Rehab Nazzal. Francis is a video artist who spent time in Haiti after the earthquake of 2010. She captured a grassroots international and multilingual community moving off the grid and building an "Earthship." Using recycled materials to rebuild the community school of "Sa-k-la-k-wel" – which translates into "If you survive it, you will see it" – and set in a picturesque but economically depressed location, the conical structure of the "Earthship" evokes spaceships that plan to leave earth for a more just future that we create and imagine together. Francis also includes video of Jane Finch Action Against Poverty as she follows them into the 2017 May Day march, an action that seeks greater justice right where we are. Nazzal's is a community-engaged project of Cross Stitching Solidarity using Palestinian embroidery techniques to bring people together at the Gallery to make something that is larger than the sum of its parts. Francis and Nazzal, although using disparate visual strategies, both propose a kind of transnational solidarity that implicates, resists, and creates new possibilities for Mikinaakominis / Canada ... more
