[AC]2 Gallery presents a solo exhibition of works by Nicholas B. Jacobsen. 
The exhibition is a reckoning at the intersections of whiteness, purity, settler-coloniality, and Mormonism via Jacobsen's personal and ancestral history.

Artist's Statement:

​I am descended from Mormon Pioneers, who are the principle settler-colonists of the deserts west of the Rocky Mountains. Growing up in southwestern Utah, I never learned about the complicated and often violent histories my people share with the Nuwu (Southern Pauites), the Diné (Navajo), and their lands. 

Through video, installation, performance, writing, and collage, I share the education I never received, and reckon with the stories central to Mormonism and their culture. I am in love with the red sandstone cliffs and canyons, basalt ridged mesas, mountains, and small desert rivers that I was raised by. How do I hold a love that has grown in a massacre site? This is my home. This is not my homeland.
