You can draw a straight line
You can draw a straight line is a solo exhibition of recent and new work produced between 2020 and 2022. Drawing from an extended research period investigating the history of Canadian colonial expansion, the exhibition refracts Canada’s long history of trade, transportation, and resource extraction through a clouded conspiratorial lens. Mixing close readings and archival traces from Canada’s economic landscape with fictional or speculative narrative threads, You can draw a straight line vainly attempts to countenance Canada’s role as an economic superpower, and to situate its national colonial projects within global networks of expropriation and exploitation.
