Mikwenim is an exhibition presented at Gallery 101 in collaboration with the Asinabka Festival. Jo SiMalaya Alcampo and Melissa General explore the relationship of memory and landscape through the lens of decolonization through two art installations: SiMalaya Alcampos’ Singing Plants Reconstruct Memory and Generals’ Kéyahre: I Remember. Mikwenim is an Anishinaabe word meaning “to remember”. It is an animate verb, meaning that what is being remembered, is in a sense alive, and thus brings it’s own spirit.
