7 Photographic Works

February 6 – 17, 1990

About the Program

Mike MacDonald is well known for his video work in both documentary and installation video art. He has covered environmental issues and Indigenous people for many years and this exhibition continues in this tradition, dealing with totem poles and sustainability. Using mirror or reverse printing and multiple shots of a single pole gives the works a wider dimension. The totem poles in this exhibition are from Gitxsan Wet'suwet'en territory near Hazelton and are among the oldest still standing in their original environment. The photo collage works function as both a homage and a protest against the threatened clearcut.
