Exhibition: Art Gallery of Peterborough presents Fallon Simard with jes sachse: Been Here So Long at Art Gallery of Peterborough (250 Crescent St.., Peterborough, K9J 2G1). Resistance is always in conversation with care. This is the first material collaboration between jes sachse & Fallon Simard. Their work explores strategies for PTSD and continuance in the struggle of survival. Taking up the aesthetics & materiality of industrial signage, the collaboration produced 3 works that refuse the assumed neutrality of legibility & universal language. Invoking large scale meme-poems in call & answer fashion, a friendship plays in the cadence of this way-finding gesture. Fallon Simard is an Anishinaabe artist & filmmaker from Couchiching First Nation, in Treaty #3 Territory. The work examines state violence perpetrated on Indigenous bodies within a context of colonialism. It looks at intersections of land, extraction, mental health & violence. jes sachse is a Toronto-based artist, writer, & curator. Often found marrying poetry with large-scale sculptural forms, the work addresses the negotiations of bodies moving in public/private space & the work of their care.
