Inventing a Homeland

Texts by Philip Fry, and Louis Cummins

Trevor Gould is concerned with mental geography and inhabitation. In South Africa, his place of birth and early youth, a "homeland" is a circumscribed area assigned by white authority to black inhabitants much as indigenous peoples in Canada are consigned to artificial communities or reservations. Gould begs the question: Do we think that people, whether the colonized or the colonizers, can really be at home in such a situation? With a full-colour catalogue, and essays by Philip Fry and Louis Cummins, this publication explores Gould’s artistic practice and recent works presented at the Ottawa Art Gallery.
