Freeze: Rebecca Belmore's memorial to Neil Stonechild

Ideas

Neil Stonechild was an Indigenous adolescent who was picked up by police in downtown Saskatoon in mid-winter, driven to the industrial suburbs late at night, and intentionally abandoned. He ultimately froze to death. Anishinaabe artist Rebecca Belmore produced a piece called "Freeze: Stonechild Memorial" in commemoration of of the event. It's a sculpture, made of ice, installed outside the Remai Modern Gallery in Saskatoon since February 1st, when a major retrospective of her work opened there.
