BC Collective in Conversation
BC Collective, Cora-Allan Wickliffe (Ngāpuhi, Taniui, Niue) and Daniel Twiss (Lakota Sioux, Rosebud Reservation) was in conversation with curator Grace Ryder about Following the herd, their new installation and performance featured in the current exhibition From the Ground Up: Community, Cultivation and Commensality at The Dowse.
Sharing food has been a central element to BC Collective and their installations since their
establishment in 2017. Partners and collaborators, Wickliffe and Twiss work with food, specifically Indian Tacos, to encourage conversations with their audiences about culture and inherited knowledge, - in this instance looking at colonial food sources adopted and elevated by their indigenous and native communities.
