Part of Ill Repute series, The Apology is a new media installation featuring rare colour footage from 1941 Vancouver. This work juxtaposes the modern city with Aboriginal Children at an undisclosed Residential School and with a voice over of the Apology by Stephen Harper to the First Nations, Inuit and Metis People of Canada, producing a multi-layered response to the production and reconsideration of contemporary history.
