This series of photographic medium-format works builds from Lacie Burning’s sculptural work Reflection Piece (2016). The figure depicted in the photographs moves through a winter thicket wearing a mask made of broken mirror shards. The mask reflects and refracts the landscape that surrounds the figure, signalling reciprocal relationships to land.
Reflection Series was born out of the artist’s relationship with the land claims at Kanonhstaton, which happened on Six Nations of the Grand River Territory, Ontario, in 2006. Burning was twelve years old when the conflict began and it marked the beginning of a political awakening and awareness of race relations with communities surrounding the reserves.
