Suspended in the Winter Garden, artist Jordan Bennett’s site-specific installation intersects his Mi’kmaq ancestral and contemporary traditions, particularly a petroglyph which depicts the Milky Way. Historical references to the land, sky, and our galaxy are illuminated by Bennett’s handling of color, both traditional and pop, his interpretation of Mi’kmaq quillwork patterns and motifs and the use of contemporary materials.

For example, Bennett reimagines reflective vinyl on aluminum typically associated with road signs – to evoke cultural markers of the past. The title Tepkik, a Mi’kmaq word for night, reflects on when we can visually see our place in the galaxy – bringing the stars and stories of our galaxy into view at any time of day.
