Heritage Minutes: Kenojuak Ashevak

"There is no one Inuit word for art.  

We say it is to transfer something from the real to the unreal".


A founding member of Cape Dorset’s famed printmaking co-op, Kenojuak Ashevak introduced Inuit art to the world (1927-2013).

The Living Stone

This documentary shows the inspiration behind Inuit sculpture. The Inuit approach to the work is to release the image the artist sees imprisoned in the rough stone. The film centres on an old legend about the carving of the image of a sea spirit to bring food to a hungry camp.

Directed by John Feeney - 1958
