Here We Land

When
All Day
Where
Glyndor Gallery

Artists Camille Hoffman, Maria Hupfield and Sara Jimenez each create strikingly original installations for the exhibition Here We Land, opening April 14 in Wave Hill’s Glyndor Gallery. Former participants in Wave Hill’s artist-in-residence program, Winter Workspace, the three artists make an exuberant return to Wave Hill this spring to present compelling works that demonstrate deepened practices. Recognizing themes that converge in the artists’ advancing work, Senior Curator Jennifer McGregor conceived of an exhibition that would tie them conceptually.

In Here We Land, the artists explore narratives that draw from their distinct cultural heritages, creating works that give marginalized perspectives form, shape and sound. The exhibition brings together three, bold voices expressing strong points of view about claiming place. Looking into their own experiences and that of their ancestors, they use Wave Hill’s architecture and natural environment to react to fraught border crossings, First Nation objects and colonialist history. Traversing three rooms, visitors become immersed in the varied ideas, visions and methods of each artist. Of their work for the exhibition, Camille Hoffman says, “An important subject that we’re all explaining is this interconnection between land and body—where does land live within the body?” Maria Hupfield adds, “And displacement from land, colonial histories, trauma—trauma of land, trauma of bodies—even if it’s something that’s not physical/immediate in the work, that is part of a history of trauma.”
