Anastasia Fyk is a 4th generation farmer, artist, translator, and pilot based in Treaty 2 Territory in Garland, MB, Canada. Her practice focuses on cycles, especially agricultural, to address the disconnect between modern society and its roots. To accomplish this, her objective is to cultivate an accessible space to disseminate knowledge on the food system and its current relationship to the earth. From this space, interlocutors can become more informed about the problems of the industrialization of agriculture, creating discourse on the value of the community essence of the family farm and peasant farmers around the world. Her approach to farming is based on soil health, regional systems, and anti-colonialism; restorative farming practices that are inherently linked to nutritious food and food sovereignty.
