About This Exhibition

Organized by VOX, centre de l’image contemporaine

Born in Kahnawa:ke Mohawk Territory, Skawennati creates Indigenous virtual environments addressing history, the future and change.  We Extend the Rafters frames the machinima The Peacemaker Returns, a futuristic saga set in 3025, yet firmly rooted in the ancestral Haudenosaunee confederation story. This machinima is an animation-style film produced on the virtual reality platform Second Life.  The Peacemaker Returns was designed specifically for children aged 5 to 11 but visitors of all ages are invited to explore traditions and imagine the world of tomorrow in this “museum of the future.”
