katinngak is an exhibition of new and recent sculptural installations in conversation with earlier video work by Nunatsiavut artist, essayist and educator Mark Igloliorte. With a heavy emphasis on process, repetition, and experimentation, Igloliorte weaves together concepts and themes that include observational engagement, skateboard culture and public space, and language. Igloliorte’s methodology also acts as a pedagogy when navigating colonial institutions, activating public space and his own journey learning Inuktitut.

Toronto-based Inuk designer Mark Bennett premieres his work in Winnipeg with I’m Tired, a vinyl wall art installation. Bennett reflects on burnout within the arts, explores the importance of digital communications as a tool for community building in the absence of in-person gatherings and underscores the vital need for critical discussions around identity, community responsibility and institutional pressures.

katinngak and I’m Tired are presented in conjunction with the Inuit Studies Conference 2022: Auviqsaqtut which takes place at The University of Winnipeg and Qaumajuq/Winnipeg Art Gallery from June 19 – 22.  The exhibitions are open to the public weekdays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm until August 5. Closed July 1 and August 1.
