Cover Up

October 6 @ 12:00 pm - December 24 @ 5:00 pm PDT

Free
Cover Up is an exploration of the cultural genocide perpetuated by church and state; british empire, canadian government, protestant and catholic churches. It moves us toward the underbelly of things, places we prefer to hide away from.
The Indian Act remains a perplexing and complex map of discrimination and destruction of Indigenous people, the violence with which this country was settled; violence whose ripples are still present today.
Using the popular vehicle of comic books, Damian’s depictions are the funhouse mirror through which we can see our distorted reflections. Damian offers his interpretation of the events inspired by the Indian Act, and an alternate reality; an inspiring, imaginal view of what might have been.
“As humans, the best thing we do is create beauty…that’s our best thing.” Damian believes that through the act of creation we get better, and that we can work on this relational space between us, creating art as an invocation to relationship.
Damian is a self-taught Tl’azt’en artist, highly influenced by his Indiginous heritage, exploring what it means to live as an Indigenous person in our modern world.
