About the Exhibit

Ecosystems of Inheritance engages in slow fiber conversations to remember and re-story inherited women’s agrarian stories around the Battle River from Bond’s family archive. Unconventional quilts, photo-sculptures and video emerge from conversations with inherited harms present in women’s farm stories, more-than-human beings and nêhiyaw (cree) knowledges in Treaty 6 Territory.

Over eight seasons, Bond traveled with her family between their home in amiskwacîwâskahikan and the nôtinito-sîpiy or Battle River. The artist and her son witnessed and created artwork alongside the riverbank through rotational authorship. Their intergenerational memory work thinks through responsibility to the family memories and the land, pointing beyond their family narratives toward an entangled web of relationships beside the river.

The exhibit reflects on how archival memory, land-based and embodied memory explore the incomplete and unequal relationships between settler memory and traditional Indigenous and land-based knowledges. What stories are held together and what frays? The roots, folds, and stitches are where Bond’s responsibility as woman (she/her) and mother emerge to sew a more conscious legacy for future family generations.
