The Exploited as a reference in a Mohawk rez called Kahnawake

Exhibition: 01.03.14 - 14.04.14
free ,Award winning photographer Jannica Honey is pleased to announce her latest exhibition, which takes place at Glasgow’s People’s Palace from the 1st of March to the 14th of April. Shot in Kahnawake, a Mohawk reservation outside Montreal, it captures the diverse range of residents who the photographer met last winter, when she spent two days walking around the 9000-strong community. The series of images includes peacemakers, chiefs, staff on the local newspaper, the customers of a coffee shop and a young punk rocker. All the subjects shared their stories of life on the reservation, which despite its close proximity to Montreal, exists as a separate entity with its own system of government. In Honey\\\'s previous exhibition STHLM; Go Away to Come Home she revealed the most intimate aspects of her family and friends whilst retaining a “sexy, funny, sensual and playful” nature (The Scotsman). Another topic close to her heart is the use of the female body in the sex industry. In her last exhibition at The Summerhall (Edinburgh) Honey focused on photographing not only the public perception of strippers, but allowing a glimpse of the private aspect of this line of work. At People\\\'s Palace the emphasis will be on the meaning of identity and the significant value of community, Blood quantum laws and heritage takes a central place in this series of photographs. “Humans have a deep-seated need for identifying and recognising, this is how we connect. After visiting Kahnawake I came to realise that how we see ourselves, what we identify with, is essential for the community. It is first when we establish who we are we have the possibility to share with others & expand. In many places minorities are rising, and demand not only independence but recognition. It seems as if it is the very acknowledgement that brings redemption and that full acceptance is what we all need to grow – as cultures, nations and individuals. My series of photographs from the Mohawk reservation reveal a different world; meanwhile they give emphasis to how similar we are. “ About the People\\\'s Palace Museum. People\\\'s Palace are delighted to present Honey\\\'s photographs from Kahnawake at the community space which is a display area situated in the Winter Gardens. The objective of the area is to showcase stories and lives of people around the world. Previous exhibitions have included diverse topics such as Epilepsy Scotland and Momentum Scotland.
