  • Kultsia: The Art of the Apology

  • Artist: Cease Wyss
  • Year: 2012
  • Duration: 33:44
  • Country: Canada
  • This installation work was part of the above titled group show at the Arnica Gallery in Kamloops. This work was the 3rd stage of my personal research with my mother, Kultsia-Barbara Wyss, who spent 7 years in the St Paul’s Residential School and went on to spend another 5 years in Day School, through St. Edmonds. Both of these schools were/are in North Vancouver and are walking distance from where my mother grew up. It is a conversation over tea, about her time at Residential School, and how she witnessed her life from a young girl to her elderhood, and the many challenges she faced as well as endured as a result of attending these schools. It is a legacy piece that I created for her grandchildren to hear her personal story. It is meant to either be heard in its entirety or to be heard at any point in the timeline.
