The Land Speaks to Me

ODD Gallery at Dënäkär Zho (KIAC)

Opening June 20, 5:30- 7:30 PM

On view June 21- July 28, 2024

The Land speaks to me is a solo exhibition by Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Citizen Jackie Olson. This exhibit offers a rare glimpse at her collected works-in-process: Olson makes works that want to be returned to the land, and many of her works have already been curated back. Olson harvests willow and other natural material from the land, breaks the material down to its fibres, and turns it into a paper pulp which she uses to cast and recast paper forms. Countering the organic, bits of industrial refuse recovered by Olson show up in her paper works as imprints, reliefs, and stains, representing the power of the land to adapt, recover, and reclaim.
