Legends from Nunavik

Legends from Nunavik

Mosquito Duell - Aisa Amittuk Old Woman Carving, Mark Tertiluk Attatsialuk Waiting, Pitsulak Pinguatuk

The Exhibition 'Legends from Nunavik' is the wonderful achievement of a contest Held in Canada. It will be shown only at Canadian Arctic Gallery in Basel, Switzerland.

In 2012 the Federation des coopératives du nouveau Québec has put on a sculpture contest for the sculptors from Nunavik (Arctic Quebec). The artworks had to be based on a legend.

Legend is any story that comes from Inuit culture. A few examples are Sedna or Lummaq. But there are many stories, old or recent, that could also be used. Carvers had to include a description with their entry. For this reason besides the usual Igloo-Tag there will also come a handwritten description by the artist with each purchased artwork.

We would like to express our sincerest thanks to Richard Murdoch and his staff from the Federation des coopératives du nouveau Québec for this international cooperation.
