Unofficial Apology

Shift: Dialogues of Migration in Contemporary Art, MacKenzie Art Gallery, Regina SK

In the context of the Canadian government's 2008 apology for residential schools and its subsequent 2010 withdrawal of funding to First Nations University of Canada, this performance offers a critical response to official deficiencies by incorporating Canadian flag imagery and the signally language of semaphore to enact and re-enact apology.
