In a unique sculptural collaboration, Rebecca Belmore and Osvaldo Yero used ice to make a new artwork, melted over the duration of the long sleepless night of Nuit Blanche. A large block of ice signified a life-size form, the body absent, as evidence that it too will disappear. This work symbolically suggested the frozen land of Canada in winter. To be left outside for too long is to die.
