Lands of Enchantment

August 4, 2023 - September 29, 2023

Erinn Kathryn

Lands of Enchantment (2019-present), challenges the glossy, picturesque mirages of America found on postcards of the 20th century.

 

Postcards are talismans of tourism. They memorialize ones experience in a place. They idealize the place itself. But what if they revealed truths? In these dioramas, the idyllic postcard imagery is obscured by truths: black text listing the indigenous tribes who have stewardship over the land (https://native-land.ca/) and red text revealing an unspoken truth about the condition of that land. These overlays elucidate the cost of progress. Viewers toggle between fore, middle, and background– future, present, past– as text casts shadows on the postcard imagery, indicating that layers are coexistent.
