Not From Here

Not From Here (2012) performed the symbolic act of recollecting the items originally used to purchase Mississauga’s land from the native population including articles such as ammunition, rum, blankets and ribbon. Traveling on foot from the central mall—where none of these artifacts could be procured—into the sprawl, the act, over the course of two days and nearly 20 miles, symbolized a transformation of independence: liberation from the colluding forces of mass-retail and automotive culture.
