About The Exhibition
This exhibition of new textile works by Baker Lake artist Janet Nungnik (b.1954) was produced over a period of more than 15 years. Nungnik’s embroidered and appliqued images tell the story of her life and that of her people, the Padlermiut, a small group of inland- dwelling Inuit whose traditional territory lay to the south of Baker Lake, Nunavut. With their radiant colour and ravishingly detailed handiwork, these works celebrate the joys of life in the North.
This exhibition marks the artist’s solo museum debut.
