Artist Description

Artist notes:
Absolute Ownership of Land is merely a myth. The earth's crust cannot be moved or removed like any other object of ownership. Therefore, land ownership refers only to a set of rights over a certain piece of the earth's crust in relation to other human beings. These rights then allows for borders, occupation, and everything else related to the land.

Land "ownership" only happens in two ways, you are given the rights to the land (via sale, goodwill, etc) or you take the rights to the land ( war, forced removal, etc...) and in turn you will then hold the supreme right to dispossess, uproot, relocate, marginalize, divide, oppress, the people of that land, as history has proven.
