When the exhibit Tunirrusiangit: Kenojuak Ashevak and Tim Pitsiulak opened in the Sam & Ayala Zacks Pavilion it was one of the largest showcases of Inuit artwork at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). It could be seen as singular sound that started a continuing harmony, and one that echoes here within these walls of the Joan Goldfarb Study Centre.
The two works Silaup Putunga and Inuit in the Media relate to the idea of an echo, and to nipi – the inuktitut word that best describes sound as understood in the English language. Commissioned within the context Tunirrusiangit, they were created by Laakkuluk Williamson Bathroy and Jamie Griffiths, Taqralik Partridge as responses to the artwork of Inuit artists Kenojuak Ashevak and Tim Pitsiulak.
