Grand Theft Terra Firma

Submitted artwork
“Pick your thief and play a part in the crime” reads the instructions to Grand Theft Terra Firma. A combination of installations and photographic compositions, the exhibition makes reference to gameplay from the popular video game Grand Theft Auto, and invites visitors to participate in one of the world’s greatest heists: Colonialism. Rather than choosing a mean-mugged car-jacker avatar, your choices range from engineer to miner, and the images – made in collaboration with Stó:lō community members – explore a biting satire merging fact and fiction to poke-fun at and poke holes in colonial histories. —Mollie Cronin
