Pi Artworks is delighted to share Fatma Bucak’s duo exhibition with Krista Belle Stewart at the Museum of Contemporary Art MOCA Toronto between 1 October – 3 January 2021.
Acts of Erasure brings the two distinct practices of Fatma Bucak and Krista Belle Stewart into dialogue. This pairing opens space for conversations around political identity concerning land and heritage, methodologies of historical repression and interpretation, and the act and effects of erasure. Bucak was born in eastern Turkey and identifies as both Kurdish and Turkish, an identity inherently tied to the social realities of border landscapes. Stewart is a member of the Upper Nicola Band of the Syilx (Okanagan) Nation in British Columbia. Her practice draws out personal and political narratives inherent in archival materials while questioning their articulations in institutional histories.
