“It was a gift to my parents on their wedding day. A four point, Hudson’s Bay Company blanket. Beautiful. Practical. Quintessential Canadiana. I was born 10 months later.”
With these words, photographer Mark Walton begins an exploration of his (and our) complicity in cultural genocide. Starting with memories growing up in Winnipeg to fathering two non-identifying Mohawk sons, the exhibition ranges from childhood fantasy to cold realization.
Complicity is on view at Button Factory Arts
until August 15.
Shown: Complicity II
