Ningiukulu Teevee: Drawings and Prints from Cape Dorset
This is the first monograph of Ningiukulu Teevee's work.
Ningiukulu Teevee has never lost her wonder at the world, and, at heart, she is unikaarti—a storyteller. She thinks in pictures, and drawing is her language. Teevee is soft-spoken, but her message is clear and strong, and with it she is expanding the narrative of the North, breaking new ground for Inuit art. Teevee hails from Cape Dorset, home to a multigenerational community of artists and the Kinngait Studios, the longest continually operating print studios in Canada.
Teevee's work is rooted in respect for traditional Inuit culture and an abiding love of family, but Teevee has proven herself unafraid of pushing artistic boundaries. In drawings alive with mischievous charm or weighted by a grittier reality, she often merges traditional Inuit art with contemporary aesthetics, revealing positive and negative changes to life in Arctic communities.
