Post-screening Q&A moderated by Stacey Ho, an artist, writer, and curator living on the unceded Coast Salish territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples. Their practice considers intersections of culture, history, and embodied experience from a feminist perspective. Informed by a background in photography and performance art, they often incorporate language, sound, and gesture into their work. They also spend a lot of time thinking about math, plant medicine, and perfume.
Byron Peters is an artist and writer based in Vancouver, unceded Coast Salish Territories. His collaborative and solo works take the form of sculpture, text, sound, and video, and his research engages emerging technologies, economic imaginaries, prison education, and the histories of science.
