Annie Pootoogook: Kinngait Compositions by Jan Allen

Annie Pootoogook
Agnes Etherington Art Center
23 × 25.5 × 0.8 cm

This is an insightful and engaging look at the working Inuit artist Annie Pootoogook. With drawings spanning 2001-2006, this book focuses on Kinngait (Cape Dorset), Nunavut, the Arctic community that has been the focus of Annie Pootoogook’s practice. While her drawings offer an unflinching look at life in a community in transition, they also bear witness to the bonds among its people. In her work, we see Pootoogook’s approach refined and applied to the elements of daily life in domestic interiors, community activities, supernatural incidents and interpersonal conflict. In the context of the broad popular appeal of Inuit graphics, these works are distinguished by a disconcerting emotional reserve and a cool observational quality that pushes at the boundaries, a condition of charged understatement that has drawn intense critical interest to the artist.
