OBORO is pleased to welcome the talented video artist Mélanie O’Bomsawin for the whole year, thanks to the support of the Foundation of Greater Montreal. Over several months, she will document our events and complement them with various mediation activities. This residency is part of our 2017 programming dedicated to Indigenous artists and thinkers. During her stay with us, Mélanie will explore various techniques and try out many types of equipment. A celebratory event will be organized at the end of the year to present all her video capsules. Stay tuned!

M. O’Bomsawin, 2017

Video editor, digital media artist, tinkerer, geek and videographer, Mélanie O’Bomsawin works with video in all its forms. Using installations, projections and documentaries, she explores her relationships with the people who were there before her and those who will follow. Questions of identity, memory and knowledge transmission are at the centre of her practice. Mélanie is of w8banaki (Abenaki) and québécois descent, and she currently lives in Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyaang/Montréal. She makes art for past and future generations.
