Storied Bodies


Event details

In her new solo exhibition of paintings and — for the first time — multiple sculptures, Gabriela Hirt explores how unconscious memory is lodged in our bodies, and what it does to our relationships. 

 Drawing from personal inquiry, the Victoria artist unpacks her own biases and ignorance as a white settler living on Turtle Island.  At a time when many are beginning to acknowledge how deeply we are steeped in the notion of white body supremacy, Gabriela is interested in the way trauma and collective guilt can keep us mired in constructed concepts of hierarchy, perpetuating colonial injustice.
