Event Description

Alluvia is an exploration of geologic memory and personal geography. Using mediums derived directly from the earth, the work embodies the geological and hydrological processes that shape so-called British Columbia. The ritual process of collecting and converting soil into paint imbues the work with sentimental weight and connects the work to ancient human relationships with pigment. Rivers serve as a metaphor for the flow of time as well as to highlight water’s pivotal role as architect and in the continuation of life on this land.
---
Simone Littledale Escobar is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice uses foraged and naturally derived mediums to explore ties to place, tradition, ritual, superstition, and personal history. Her experience is strongly shaped by her Colombian/Canadian heritage and her upbringing by the ever-changing waters of the Pacific coast. Aside from art, Simone is a middle school teacher and a published poet who spends her free time birdwatching and scouring cut blocks and riverbeds for natural artifacts. She currently lives as an uninvited guest on the unceded territories of the Lək̓ ʷəŋən and W̱SÁNEĆ people.
---
The fifty fifty arts collective is comprised of individuals living and working on unceded and occupied First Nations Territories, specifically the lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, as well as the W̱SÁNEĆ, Sc'ianew and T'Souke First Nations.
The programming space itself is situated on Songhees and Esquimalt Territory but engages with individuals and communities across Turtle Island.
As a collective we endeavour to deepen our own understandings of how we are implicated in the history and in the present ongoing project of settler colonialism. As members of the fifty fifty arts collective we continually responsibilize ourselves to the complex kind of space that is the fifty fifty which hosts and facilitates the dissemination of the ideas and work of others.
