Incunabula Wall, 2016

Alejandro Arauz - Brantford, Canada

The Incunabula Wall installation references the space, vernacular and procedures used at ports of entry.

This installation includes video, sculptural relief and commercial signage to create a surreal and interactive experience for the audience. The participants can create take away ‘impressions’ from the various matrices in the installation.

The main matrices are on two plinths; one shows the Canadian coat of arms, and the other a ‘proposed’ coat of arms. In 2002, Senator Vivienne Poy proposed to change the Canadian National Anthem, in 2008 another motion was introduced into the House of Commons calling on the government to amend the coat of arms and incorporate First Nations, Inuit, and Métis symbols.

The Incunabula Wall continues the exploration of identity, lineage and diaspora through interdisciplinary print-based works. 

Alejandro Arauz is a Nicaraguan-Canadian interdisciplinary artist working in print, performance, video, photography and mixed media.
