Co-presented with the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

Follows Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier's wanderings through each of their worlds as they contemplate the afterlife, rebirth, and the place in-between. Spoken mostly in chinuk wawa, their stories are departures from the Chinookan origin of death myth, with its distant beginning and circular shape.
