"When Spirits Awaken" is a solo exhibition of a collection of multimedia installations based on women’s stories gathered and presented by Kurdish – Syrian artist Khadija Baker. These stories pay homage to the Syrian revolution and to mothers who experienced the loss of their loved ones or who have also been killed asking for freedom and basic human rights. In this current project, we will install three recent performance installations: "Don’t leave me….I am still alive", "My Little Voice Can’t Lie", and "When Spirits Awaken." Together, we will explore the questions that drive Ms. Baker’s artistic production.

How much history do we share?
How do our experiences translate across diversities of privilege and victimization?
What can we do now to be useful in bringing about change for peace today?

Come in from the cold and share your stories throughout the run of the program. G101 is excited to join in Ms. Baker’s artistic research about oral histories and our shared human perspectives on persecution, displacement, identity, and healing.

Gallery 101 gratefully acknowledges the support of the City of Ottawa, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts. Gallery 101 thanks the Asinabka: Film & Media Arts Festival, Niigaan: In Conversation, our members, volunteers, partners, and all our relations.
