Using various media – text, painting, video, photography, and performance, [these artists] take on Montreal as First Nations urban territory. Refuting Hochelaga’s vanishing narrative, they depict personal experiences that cast a light on the still existent – yet often ignored and marginalized Indigenous presence in the city.

Shié Kasai: Survival Japanese Cooking
Texts by Zoë Chan, Shié Kasai, Tatiana Mellema
In French & English
132 pp / colour illustrations / soft cover / 6’’ x 6’’
In Survival Japanese Cooking, food and the act of eating function as a simple yet potent metaphor for the intercultural encounters – sometimes congenial, sometimes difficult – that play out at a street level on a daily basis between people, thus contributing to the evolution of a society - visiting a supermarket is like looking at the inside of a cultural fridge
– Shié Kasai
