In these large-scale self-portraits, Saskatoon-based Cree/Saulteaux/Métis artist Lori Blondeau poses statuesquely on the sites of significant Plains Indigenous rock formations. Adhered to the ancient stones in Devonian Square—imported from the Canadian Shield—the installation is a powerful reminder of Toronto’s pre-colonial history and the continuing importance of ancestral gathering places created for sacred ceremonies and for recording histories.

A public installation of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival
