LORI BLONDEAU’S “ASINLY ISKWEW” IN DEVONIAN SQUARE PORTRAYS A POWERFUL ‘ROCK WOMAN’

Ryerson University temporarily gave its Devonian Square over to Lori Blondeau’s ‘Rock Woman’ (title is a translation from the Cree language) for Contact/2017.

The images were adhered to 2-billion-year-old boulders transported from the Canadian Shield to downtown TORONTO. The raison d’etre – issues of displacement, environmental preservation, indigenous history and connection to the land.

  1. This is just defacing a group of perfectly fine rocks. Why not install a four sided light box in the pool, with an image on each side? Internally illuminated at night, mirrored in the water, and the rocks stand on their own as ther do now.
