Janet-Marie Rogers & Alex Jacobs

When We Were Stars

Artist Information

Janet-Marie Rogers & Alex Jacobs collaborate as Ikkwenyes (Mohawk word for Dare to Do). In this exhibit they revisit the Haundenosaunee creation story "Sky Women" to talk about land, our place on the land and our place before land. The physical body is a personal piece of territory we are born with, territories are the physical body we are born onto and both are rife with politics and cultural value systems which rarely live harmoniously in the same place. This too is part of our history and will remain our constant struggle to be understood.
