First monograph of the artist, poet, and filmmaker Sky Hopinka whose work embraces Native American perspectivism and reverses the primacy of representation of non-Western identities.

Sky Hopinka's video, photo, and text work centers around personal positions of Indigenous homeland and landscape, designs of language as containers of culture expressed through personal, documentary, and non fiction forms of media. This monograph, published on the occasion of his first major exhibition in France at LUMA Arles, which includes earlier and more recent video and photographic works, includes essays by Flora Katz, Vassilis Oikonomopoulos and Diana Flores Ruíz, as well as an interview with Sky Hopinka by Andrea Lissoni and Filipa Ramos.

Every copy is unique: it is composed of seventeen booklets, fifteen of which are randomly bound. Published in an edition of 700 copies, each cover features a different excerpt from the video work Mnemonics of Shape and Reason (2021).
