The Art Gallery of Alberta is proud to present Canada’s National Exhibition EXTRACTION, curated by OPSYS, to open at Biennale Architettura 2016 on May 28th. Located outside in the Giardini for the first time in the history of the biannual exhibition, the project presents an interactive landscape intervention—built into the ground—that reveals Canada’s global presence as pre-eminent extractive nation to the world. Through a unique audiovisual experience, EXTRACTION explores the scales, states, and systems of resource extraction, bringing to the surface its historical depths, as well as its political, ecological, and territorial dimensions.
The project is entirely about land, landscape, and landscape architecture. It calls attention to not only the territories of extraction that cities rely on, but the histories of colonization that underlies these territories. – Pierre Bélanger, Curator
