Katie Hargrave / Communing with White Pines

In “White Pines,” I investigate and reenact the various uses of white pines across the historyof North America: from Native American spiritual rituals and survivalist tonics, to British naval manufacturing during the colonial period, and the resulting Colonist’s resistance to the British. A plant and a nation’s history are intertwined. Taking that history to old growth forests of the midwest, I act this history out.
