Sky Hopinka in Hyperallergic

"In his writings, films, and photographs, Sky Hopinka wades through the recesses of memories. These might include his own recollections, the hazier perspectives of intimate collaborators and ancestors, or the pointed omissions of colonial actors. Each of these crucial, yet immaterial perspectives finds a register in his work, which foregrounds Indigenous languages, spiritual teachings, and notions of personhood amid a cultural landscape that has, for centuries, denigrated and denied their importance."

Read Dessane Lopez Cassell's description of Sky Hopinka's Perfidia, and sneak a preview of pages from the book, in Hyperallergic.
