Annie Pootoogook

Agnes Etherington Art Centre, 2011
64 pp 30 col. ill.10 x 8 in softcover

With drawings spanning 2001 to 2006, this publication focuses on Kinngait (Cape Dorset), Nunavut, the Arctic community that has been the focus of Annie Pootoogook's practice. While her drawings offer an unflinching look at life in a community in transition, they also bears witness to the bonds among its people. In the context of the broad popular appeal of Inuit graphics, these works are distinguished by a disconcerting emotional reserve. The artist achieves a cool observational quality that pushes at the edges of comedy or hysteria, a condition of charged understatement that has drawn intense critical interest to her work. Annie Pootoogook is the granddaughter of the renowned graphic artist Pitseolak Ashoona and daughter of artist Napachie Pootoogook. Annie Pootoogook received the prestigious Sobey Art Award in 2006. Her drawings have been exhibited at the Power Plant (Toronto) and the Museum of theAmerican Indian (New York).
