Subject To Rule
Rebecca Belmore produced this drawing during her tenure as Koerner Visiting Artist in Queens University's Department of Art in 2003. The text is a rubbing taken from the base of the Sir John A. Macdonald monument located in Kingston's City Park. Across the three sections of the piece, the artist elegantly drops words from successive versions, to shift the meaning from a declaration of the political identity of Canada's first Prime Minister to emphatic declaration of the inevitable "fact" defining subjective existence.
