Marginal Recession


Poitras, Edward (1991)

Marginal Recession is a study of the simultaneous frailty and resilience of culture, both indigenous and eurocentric. Consistent with his previous work, Edward Poitras develops his statement/question/commentary from his own situation, his own history and experience. In this exhibition he assembled photographs, artifacts, text, sculpture and other forms representing a diversity of histories: allusions to classical mythology and to the dissolution of political systems; documents of students who negotiated the ethno-racial dilemmas of Indian residential schools. All are parts of a complex interpretation of social phenomena that extends far beyond Poitras' home place of Regina.
