Ahasiw Maskegon-Iskwew

Photographs from A Mattress, a performance by Donald Ghostkeeper taken at a Vancouver warehouse in the 1990s. Ahasiw was very interested in concepts around corrosion and matter, and used the corroding mattress on numerous occasions as part of his experimentations. The usage of red drips within the photos, and the connotation of blood, was a thematic that was to come up again in later performances.
