Kourtney RoyThe Oher End of the Rainbow
By substituting absence for direct evidence, Kourtney Roy underlines the impossibilities of a discourse of evidence on these “tiny” lives that never attract attention. In British Columbia (Canada), since 1969, that is to say for more than 50 years, the murders have been spread out over time. Dozens of women and girls disappeared, some were found dead, scattered along what is now known as the “Highway of Tears”. Most of the disappearances and crimes remain unsolved. So this journey will not be a picturesque description of the Far North. Roy challenges us to perceive, from places empty in themselves and without apparent life, a sacrificed and relegated humanity. Faced with the denial of a society, Kourtney Roy’s role in photography is to share a pain and to make us feel a tension that can only find an outlet in the drama.
