Alana Bartol, 3-minute clip of Forgetting Fields II, 2022, HD, 40 min 13 sec

Drawings of plants on water-soluble paper dissolve in water. In this work, water becomes a collaborator, destroying the drawings in unpredictable ways. Many of the drawings re-form as if by magic, speaking to a process of restoration, natural cycles of renewal and growth, and the intelligence of plants.

This work is inspired by the water stewardship in Comox/Courtenay, BC, the ancestral and Unceded traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation, being undertaken by settlers and Indigenous peoples through habitat restoration and protection education, for the K’ómoks Estuary.

The plant species, illustrated by Bartol, reference the watershed restoration work of the Comox Valley Naturalist Society Wetland Restoration Project and Project Watershed. The plants were selected from a list documenting common plants in the Hollyhock Flats, a reference site in the K'omoks estuary for Kus-kus-sum, a watershed restoration project to restore the Field Sawmill site. The title is a reference to the former name of the sawmill and a call to action.

Created for the Fathom Sounds exhibition "Salt-Stained Streaks of a Worthwhile Grief" at Comox Valley Art Gallery. In the exhibition, companion pieces to this work are Nancy Tam’s Beyond Dawn, providing an ethereal soundscape for the video, and Letters to Water, a participatory artwork created by Alana Bartol and Genevieve Robertson.
