Shuvinai Ashoona at La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse
Shuvinai Ashoona, along with Ningeokuluk Teevee, is featured in Sky Ecchymosis, the second in the three-part series Women of the Arctic, at La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse in Montreal.
The two artists share in the unusual fullness of their gaze on everyday life. This vivid scrutiny is turned upon the land’s jutting reliefs, the scattered objects, the creatures and the beliefs that populate the terrain. It lingers on the relations between beings, on crossing paths, on time, while being subjected to the singular imaginary of each artist: Shuvinai Ashoona’s is violent, colorful, and provocative while Ningeokuluk Teevee’s is tender, direct, and witty.
Curated by Stéphanie Chabot.
