“This Land” presents entirely new works by multimedia artist John Massey, a major figure in the Canadian visual arts scene: a video “This Land” (after which the entire show is named) as well as “The Soldier Series”, a photographic series depicting grandiose natural landscapes or interiors typically associated with the masculine, inhabited by military figures. By creating dual images that combine true-to-reality photographic representation and an obvious mock composition, the series proposes a unique view of themes such as military image, heroism, landscape and even the sublime.
