Creation Story, 2012

Video, 14m 0s, Dimensions Variable


Amelia Winger-Bearskin's new video, "Creation Story" retells the Iroquois creation myth at the same time deconstructing the art of storytelling and the importance of myth in shaping what is to come.

From Winger-Bearskin's curator's statement:

It is my great great grand son who is taught to believe in myth and

science, in heaven and hell. He will explore the stars and look for

the places that the past has spoken about: the dancers who make

constellations, the turtle’s back, the 7 day miracle, he will wonder

about science in hushed places in his mind. In the heavens of our

imagination the children of the future are waiting for the beginning

of the world.
