This is a unique book. It is not an exhibition catalogue, nor is it an artist’s book. It is a sustained, multi-faceted exploration of a single work of art by Rebecca Belmore, March 5, 1819.

In this extraordinary video installation, Belmore looks back two centuries to revisit a devastating encounter in Beothuk territory, in the central interior of the island of Newfoundland.
