In this staged photograph I am seated in a major art museum in Canada and dressed in the contemporary battle uniform of the Canadian Armed Forces. The camouflage of the uniform has been recoloured to match the painting that hangs in front of me. The painting in question is an abstract landscape. This particular genre is ingrained into the nationalistic ideology of Canada, reflecting Canada’s colonial reimagining of the indigenous landscape. This image problematizes the nationalistic legitimacy of this genre of painting, by comparing it to the abstraction of the landscape through camouflage; a technology made for imperialism and violence.
