Eating Lunch

Zachery Longboy

1992, 10:05 minutes, colour, English


An experimental video meditation exploring the artist's personal position and placement in white culture. Continuing his search for identity from within a fractured cultural environment, the artist reflects on his history of dislocation and negotiates with the boundaries that include aspects of his experiences from within both his cultural homes; white and First Nations (native) history and culture.

"a vision of paradise /a place of desire/ i walk through an untouched garden/ birds sing/ waters flow close by/ searching / body marked/ scars of reality/ surrender to the emotion of trust/ have sight into joy/feel the insanity of need/ cleanse your soul. I stand in an arena of confusion/ putting my heart in your hand/ caress me gently/ expect a change / ride the waves that follow / sit by a lit candle/ look into your eyes/ use your voice/ dream/ i walk towards the land/ join me."
