Abstract

An artistic exploration of the impact of resource extraction on water resources in northern Canada.

‘Scarred/Sacred Water’ is an exhibition of 6 large-scale photographs by Tanya Harnett, an artist from Carry the Kettle First Nation, Saskatchewan, Canada. Through these striking images Harnett draws attention to the environmental issues surrounding resource extraction.

Developed in collaboration with members of 5 Northern Alberta First Nations, these photographs highlight the perspective of rural First Nations on the energy industry’s impacts on their communities and raise important questions about the sustainability of different forms of resource extraction relevant to debates taking place in communities well beyond northern Canada.
