Don Gill: D'Arcy Island
Lorna Brown

Social history is inextricably tied to natural history and Don Gill's investigations have produced a convergence of the two, often evolving into case studies which the artist documents through photography, text, video and installation. D'Arcy Island, which is just off Vancouver Island, was home to a leper colony from 1894 to 1924. Forty-nine Chinese men were exiled to the island after contracting leprosy and were left to fend for themselves. Gill's work maps this historical landscape through film and photography.
