The Good Guise Present – Future Ancestors: From Care to Accountability
During these times of multiple pandemics, the Good Guise looked through their personal and community histories for inspiration and solace. We began at Eglinton West with the recognition that to become Future Ancestors, we would have to first learn to care for ourselves, our survival, and that of our communities. Our second installation brings you an immersive audiovisual experience that weaves together poetry and photo/videography by Jah Grey, Mosheh I – Tree Herdsman, Bidemi Oloyede and Mobólúwajídìde (Bo) Joseph with contributions from the larger Good Guise.
We have been harmed, we ourselves also have harmed. What does it then mean to be accountable to ourselves and to others in this dual reality? This installation invites you to immerse yourselves in our reflections as we approach this question from a position of self and communal care. We ask what it means to love and practice loving accountability as future ancestors rooted in community. While we don’t yet have the answers, we hope this can be a starting point for others asking similar questions.
Making With Place is SKETCH’s first series of public art projects in which artists consider the complexities of place while engaging with communities in thoughtful community-engaged design and production processes. Making with Place is part of ArtworxTO: Toronto’s Year of Public Art 2021 – 2022, and funded by the Government of Canada, The City of Toronto, and Canada Council for the Arts.
Our public events will have ASL interpretation available. This site does have a step which renders part of the installation inaccessible, but still viewable to folks in mobility devices. Video and sound elements will be present.
This outdoor in-person event will takes place on Friday, December 3rd, 2021, from 5pm to 6pm at Trinity in the Square (outdoors) behind Toronto Eaton Centre Mall, Downtown, Toronto
