Krista Belle Stewart
Krista Belle Stewart presented Indian Momento (2017) an installation which revisits a scene from Michel Régnier’s Indian Memento, produced for the “Indians of Canada” pavilion at EXPO 67, Montréal. Referencing Catholicism and Indigenous residential schools, the work engages with questions on representation, intervention and violence.
Krista Belle Stewart’s participation formed part of Little did they know, the Guest Programme of the 39th EVA International, curated by Merve Elveren.
