Elena Perlino directed “Indian Time” during three stays at the Quebec-Labrador border.
Her series of photographs spreads to the Innu and Naskapi communities, between Natashquan, Mani-Utenam, Matimékush-Lac-John, Kawawachikamach and Sheshatshiu.
She has travelled through these singular spaces and times, which are marked by ritual, the passage of traditions and daily life, to bring us into northernity, as close as possible to those who inhabit it.
Indian Time encounters landscapes and human stories that reveal the chaotic traces left by Quebec’s recent history, such as the mines located in Matimékush/Schefferville.
Each image then invites us to revisit the established order and to follow the artist’s sensitive gaze, beyond a documentary vision.
