Qanimts Remy Siu

“Qanimts” is a collaboration between Coast Salish artist Russell Wallace and myself. I was invited to participate in an evening retrospective for “Neo-Nativism” held at the Western Front. Originally imagined as a “Salish Beatbox,” the piece uses Coast Salish consonants as its dominant sound material. The voices featured are that of the Russell and his daughter, Justine Wallace. The process involved questions between the artists on the subject of language, Russell’s childhood, and the political activity of First Nations peoples in British Columbia.
