Boarder X at The Rooms in St-John’s, Newfoundland

Last year, Jared Hawco shot this video for the Boarder X exhibit at The Rooms in St-John’s, Newfoundland. Boarder X presents contemporary work by artist from indigenous nations across Canada who surf, skate and snowboard.
The exhibition reveals how these practices are vehicles to challenge conformity and status quo, as well as demonstrate knowledge and performed relationships with the land. Local skaters of all ages and skill levels came through to view the exhibit, attend workshops and explore the relationships with their skateboards and the environments around them.
