“Below the Canoe”: Selections from Colin Browne’s new book, Entering Time

During the groundbreaking Charles Edenshaw exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2013, poet Colin Browne found himself returning often to study three large argillite (slate) platters carved by the Haida master in the late 1800s. Browne has since authored Entering Time: The Fungus Man Platters of Charles Edenshaw, an exploration of the art, history, and folklore behind Edenshaw’s platters. In this newly published book, Browne ranges through the fields of art history, literature, ethnology, and myth to discover a parallel history of modernism within one of the world’s most subtle and sophisticated artistic and literary cultures. On Meta-Talon today, we share selections from Chapters Five and Six of Entering Time.
