2004 / Tribe, Saskatoon, SK / Installation

Temperance is an installation that centres around the freezing deaths of Indigenous men outside a power plant in Saskatoon. The installation consists of a video projected on plexiglass of the smokestacks at the Queen Elizabeth II Power Station at sunrise. In front of the plexiglass hangs a hand-made chandelier made from light-bulbs and broken wine bottles in the shape of a cross. On the wall behind the plexiglass is a portrait of Queen Elizabeth.
