Mother, daughter and granddaughter, Mélanie O’Bomsawin is a videographer and a new media artist. Born to a W8banaki (Abenaki) and a Quebecer parent, she uses video in all its forms to explore her connections with the generations who came before and those who will follow. Her practice examines questions of identity, tradition, memory, and knowledge transmission through human relationships. Keenly interested in new technologies, she constantly searches for original ways to tell stories and transform how we see the world around us. The narrative sovereignty of Indigenous communities is at the forefront of O’Bomsawin’s creative philosophy. It inspires her to, one day, build the archives of the future and recreate the pixels of the past. A member of the Abenaki community of Odanak, O’Bomsawinis currently based in Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyang/Montreal (Quebec).
