”Musqueam artists Alicia Point and Cyler Sparrow-Point and South-Asian Canadian artists Keerat Kaur, Sunroop Kaur, and Sandeep Johal and historian Naveen Girn have produced a collaborative site-specific mural named Taike-Sye’yə. This mural centers the commemoration of the Komagata Maru Episode that occurred in 1914 in the Burrard Inlet where 368 predominantly Sikh passengers were denied entrance to Canada based on the newly created "Continuous Passage Law" designed to block immigration of racialized people into Canada. Specifically, the artwork depicts oral accounts given by both South Asian and Musqueam community members who tell of the Musqueam paddlers who canoed out across the inlet to feed the passengers on the boat as they were blocked access to the shore for 62 days. The collaborative mural transforms 4,000 square feet of the exterior wall of the Harry Stevens Federal Building at 125 East 10th Avenue (Vancouver) into a highly visible public site of remembrance and site for sparking dialogue regarding promotion of cultural redress with Indigenous and South Asian communities. Note: The Harry Stevens, the building’s namesake, was a central governmental figure in the denial of the passenger's entry into Canada during the Komagata Maru Episode.”

Raise Your Words, Not Your Voice

Raise Your Words, Not Your Voice encourages women to use their individual and collective voice to speak out and express themselves, but remain impeccable with their word when doing so. While painting, I realized this mural was also about supporting women in being unafraid to take up physical space, and what better way to portray this than by having a gigantic woman on a public wall literally talking up space?

Girls Are Fierce Like Tigers was inspired by a drawing I created during a residency at the Anvil Centre in New Westminster. The lady on the tiger is a representation of Durga, the warrior goddess. It’s also a nod to the graphic novel, Priya’s Shakti, which was a response to the heart-breaking gang-rape and subsequent death of Jyoti Singh in 2012. In the novel, Priya is also gang-raped and then banished from her village to which she later returns an unlikely superhero. Like Priya, much of the work I’m doing now revolves around empowering women and championing women’s rights so I wanted to bring that into the mural.
