Slaughterhouse
Canada / 15:00 / 2014 / sound / colour & b/w / English
This multi-framed work weaves several inter-connected threads of loss: of land and agriculture, of property and business, through political, social, economic and environmental slaughter. The materials in this archive are gleaned from public and personal sources such as the National Archive of Canada, in the story of a nineteenth century aboriginal woman and land rights activist Nahnebahwequay (1824-65) and more recently organic farmer Michael Schmidt, from excerpts of the Farmer's Advocate and Family Herald publications 1958-1968, also a trip into the artist's familial past, and the rise and fall of his family's slaughterhouse and pork processing plant, Hoffman Meats (1951-81), in Kitchener, Ontario.
