Documenting over thirty years of Rebecca Belmore’s remarkable, poignant and important performance career, Wordless: The Performance Art Of Rebecca Belmore brings together essays, inquiries and personal reflections from a community of artists, scholars, writers and Indigenous thinkers. The book also features five new photographs of Belmore’s re-presented work produced by the grunt gallery.

 The role of an artist is a worker, art-making is a job.... We have the responsibility to carry the past and look towards the future.

Rebecca Belmore

As Kathleen Ritter writes, “Belmore’s work addresses some of the most challenging and urgent issues of our time—injustice, racism, violence, trauma, resilience and, ultimately, hope. Her use of voice is political inasmuch as the subjectivity of an Indigenous woman is inherently political; her work an assertion of presence in the face of society’s efforts to silence and to erase.”

Co-published with grunt gallery, Vancouver Canada.
