SFU Writer’s Series Talk II: Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, August 27th


REMEMBER: A Talk with Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas on art, memory, and the power of small.

Yahgulanaas was commissioned to create a graphic narrative that combines classic Haida design with Asian manga, and combines Haida legend with contemporary questions of memory, distance, loss, longing, error and anger – and a reminder to recover the living moment.

“I want to find a way to see memory not as a distance but as a post-it note, a reminder to recover those distant elements. If it is longing, is there a way to revive that element and bring it to the living moment? If it is tragedy, what can I do about it here and now?”
