No, I’ve never herd of bison
Time can move in a blink of an eye. For example, few realize that bison would roam the area that is now downtown Winnipeg. Apparently having them on most provincial documents isn’t much of a reminder. For many Manitobans, there is a long history surrounding the bison.
This piece is an interactive installation with multiple cardboard bison that will be lit up. The size, shape, and style of the bison represents their phase in our interpretation of history. Are they fully formed? Compartmentalized? Or just a shadow of their past just to blink out of memory.
I’ve never herd of bison here… is an Illuminate The Night project of Nuit Blanche Winnipeg funded by our Producing Partner Winnipeg Arts Council.
