“mâsikîskâpoy” is an installation by interdisciplinary Ililiw artist Megan Feheley that contemplates what occurs when access to land and knowledge transference between generations is interrupted by colonization. Tobacco ties are frozen in ice, suspended from a chain, above a blanket of cedar boughs. The work melts and seeps into the space, calling into being a collaboration with land and time; questioning repeatedly how to heal a rupture such as the colonial legacies intergenerational trauma has inflicted on Indigenous people. mâsikîskâpoy also articulates this anxiety in the face of climate collapse, another arm of ongoing colonial violence, and a common theme throughout Feheley’s practice.
