February 10 – March 11, 2023; Reception + Talk: Friday February 10th, 5PM

Ports of Entry explores what it means to be Chinese in Canada. It encompasses a range of media, from traditional drawings and paintings, to animated and interactive artwork. This body of work was researched and conceptualized from 2018 – 2021, culminating in an extended trip through British Columbia in 2021, to research the history of Chinese settler migration from the late 1800s. Janet’s trip wound along the Gold Rush Trail and alongside the railway routes carved into the mountainsides by Chinese labourers. She recorded the juxtapositions of the celebrated histories and landmarks with the indelible marks left on the landscape by the labour of Chinese settlers.
