Ts̱ēmā Igharas


Tsēmā Igharas (Tāłtān, born in Smithers, Canada; lives in Smithers and in Vancouver, Canada) delves into the connection between bodies and the land, and challenges extractivism-related issues through Indigenous resistance strategies and methodologies. Her works are often articulated around interventions made directly on the land—either by her or by corporate mining industries. Casting a sensitive and critical gaze on materials, she offers narratives in which natural resources have their say.
