Olamina sculpture at the waterfront

The massive blue head lies in Aitken Place Park in Toronto, a temporary art installation called Olamina from Earthseeds: space of the living on view until early October 2021.

From the​ ​Black Speculative Art Movement (BSAM) website​, "Olamina is a larger than life public art sculpture currently living at Aitken Place Park by the Toronto waterfront. This installation is part of the BSAM Canada Earthseeds: Space of the Living Waterfront Artist Residency supported by Waterfront Toronto and Waterfront BIA. It is greatly inspired by Octavia E. Butler’s Parable series, taking its namesake from the main character of Butler’s novels, Lauren Oya Olamina, and the folktales of the African water deity, Mami Wata."
