Sky Hopinka: "Lore"

“Lore,” a 2019 film by Sky Hopinka, presents images of friends and landscapes cut, fragmented and reassembled on an overhead projector as the artist’s hands guide their shape and construction. Overlaying the kaleidoscopic imagery, a narrator’s voice tells a ruminative story, weaving together family, myth, trauma, with traces of nostalgia articulated in terms of lore. The film culminates in a languorous and communal scene as a group of musicians perform Bo Diddley’s 1955 “Heart-O-Matic Love,” a song about love as a road trip. Hopinka’s art centers on personal perceptions of Native homelands as well as correlations between language and culture.
