STRANGE HOME LAND part 2 was originally produced for the exhibition Crossing Lines: An Intercultural Dialogue at the Glenhyrst Art Gallery in Brantford (2009). In this exhibition both Aboriginal and South Asian artists were asked to discuss issues of land and identity. In STRANGE HOME LAND part 2 the artist and his father are driving around southern Ontario in search of the head of the Grand River. On their journey from the head of the Grand River to its mouth, tracing the land awarded to the Iroquois in the Haldimand Land Deed (1784), they encounter migrating settlers, angry landowners, one bored fisherman, and Daniel Day Lewis.
