Cannupa Hanska Luger

Visiting Artist Cannupa Hanska Luger's Future Ancestral Technologies approaches Indigenous futurism, blending media, place, storytelling and documentation of a living practice. Future Ancestral Technologies’ narrative stems from a multitude of themes, including science fiction, genetic memory, and reclaiming Indigeneity. This new installation of the ongoing narrative offers multiple points of entry into an undetermined moment in the future, engaging the viewer in an innovative life-based art installation that dreams of survival and solutions while promoting a thriving Indigeneity.
