About

Collage of photographs and Pantone color swatches on paper Suspended in a Sunbeam, is a series of mixed-media works that span Jessica Houston’s decade-long engagement with the Canadian North. Houston explores the complex ecosystems of the Arctic, including its history of colonialization, current territorial claims, and climate change. Fragments coalesce in the gallery - colours of soil, a photograph of an abandoned trading post, a charred piece of wood emitting sounds - to emphasize the active power of materials. Earth itself fills the gallery, and our relationship to land, territory and matter is called into question. Suspended in a Sunbeam offers a space to engage with the histories through which ecologies are made and unmade - a space of solidarity with the ‘non-human’ that evokes another soil under the ground of land, where a self-organizing earth stirs.
