Indigenous artist laments loss of land to ring road with art installation.» CBC news
“The land that I grew up on is gone, it has been totally flattened… and gone. Alot of what I feel is for the land, for the animals, for the plants, and birds. Everything that is a huge part of who I am, and what my family lived there with.” – Glenna Cardinal.

‘Tsuut’ina Nation artist Glenna Cardinal has created a new art installation that explores her loss of home. The land she grew up on is now being developed as part of the SW ring road. Her installation is called “mourning home” and is on display at the Esker Foundation in partnership with TRUCK Contemporary Art.’
“What from a distance look like loose sketches and doodles were actually tightly controlled, richly textured surfaces – Torma’s revolt, in her skill, of modernist dogma around medium-specificity and of a view to the historically discrete and hierarchical categories of art and craft.”
