Amanda Strong: anaamakamig (under the ground)

This exhibition goes behind the scenes to explore the world of Biidaaban (The Dawn Comes) (2018), the newest short film by Michif interdisciplinary artist Amanda Strong. Accompanied by their friend, a 10,000-year-old shape-shifter known as Sabe, Biidaaban sets out on a mission to reclaim the ceremonial harvesting of sap from maple trees in an unwelcoming suburban neighborhood of Ontario. Driven by the words of Anishinaabe writer Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Strong’s mesmerizing stop-motion animation intricately weaves together multiple worlds through time and space, calling for a rebellion. The exhibition invites visitors into the world of Biidaaban and into Strong’s process by gathering together the elaborate puppets, sets and storyboards used to animate this story.
