Ukjese Van Kampen - 24" 30" Acrylic on Canvas 2000
Ukjese VanKampen relies on stereotypes common to popular conceptions of ‘Indian-ness’. “Call U Metis?” is inspired by the artist’s find of a rusty Calumet baking powder tin. In the accompanying painting the original packaging is interpreted. The Calumet brand becomes “Call U Metis?,” and “Double-Acting” becomes “Indian Act.”
