Where Does It Hurt?: Artspeak, Vancouver

by Sydney Hart

C Magazine, Winter 2014, no. 124, pp. 44-45

The themes behind this exhibition are the intersections between art and therapy. Works displayed included tapestry, found art, and two digital video works by Krista Belle Stewart. The works are both videos of the artist's mother, Seraphine Stewart, talking about different aspects of her life. One video, produced by the CBC in 1967, records Seraphine (then named Seraphine Ned) talking about her experience being the first Aboriginal public health nurse in British Columbia. The second video is from the Truth and Reconciliation hearing in 2013 in which Stewart describes being a survivor of an Indian Residential School in Kamloops, BC.
