hochelaga rock highlights the fluidity of Indigneous knowledge and time, and the constraints imposed upon this understanding by Western structures of chronology and record. Utilizing the image of the Hochelaga Rock, the commemorative stone for the village and people encountered by Jacques Cartier in 1535 that sits at McGill campus in Tioh’tiá:ke / Montreal, I wish to interrupt its solidity to express the dislocation in time, space and understanding between Western and Indigenous worldviews. This new body of work repositions the interplay of Hochelaga Rock, its plaque and the plaque’s text, to let through glimpses of other voices, times and seasons. In this way, I hope to deconstruct colonial truths and question ways of knowing and remembering.
