Peter Morin’s performance practice draws inspiration from his ancestors.

Presented as part of Àbadakone | Continuous Fire | Feu continuel, this work questions land-use practices through cartographic and architectural materials that bring the walking paths of Tahltan territory and the Gallery as a colonial interjection into an uneasy conversation.

Morin’s care, breath and movement evoke both the urgency of and the potential of engaging in the reshaping of our current conditions.

Included with admission to the Gallery.

Note that National Gallery of Canada staff will be taking photographs of the artist during the performance.

This performance contains partial nudity.
