Anti-Objects, or Space Without Path or Boundary

Sky Hopinka
2017, 14’, USA, HD video

Collapsing history and presence, Anti-Objects explores two structures in the Portland Metropolitan Area that have direct and complicated connections to the Chinookan people who inhabit(ed) the land. Images of boundaries, limits and outlines are juxtaposed with audio tapes of one of the last speakers of Chinuk Wawa – a language indigenous to the lower Columbia River Basin.
