Join Geronimo Inutiq for an archives session opening up different insights into arctic life through an Inuit cultural perspective.
Participants will read Inuktitut legends and listen to Inuktitut music. We will look at documents in Inuktitut and translated into English from the Canada Museum of Man’s Mercury Series, and listen to CBC North records as well as a tape compilation of Inuktitut music by Small Axe Records.
Geronimo Inutiq has experience as an artist in the fields of electronic music production, deejaying, film, video editing, digital images, theatre, dance, and multimedia installation. He has worked in collaboration with many community-driven projects and cultural agencies. His work often relates to identity constructs – from the point of view of a multicultural Inuk perspective – in reflection of a metropolitan lifestyle.

Meaning “Our Voice” in Inuktituk, Nipivut is an urban Inuit community radio show concerned with connecting North and South through the medium of voice.
Curious about what sounds might have accompanied the creation of Ashoona’s work as well as what the works themselves might sound like, Nipivut’s Naluturuk Weetaluktuk has prepared a special episode based on Mapping Worlds to be broadcast the night of the event.
Listening together in the gallery space, the audience will be guided through Ashoona’s worlds—be they physical, social, imaginary or discursive.
A conversation on-site will follow between Nipivut host Annie Pisuktie and guests Jenna Amarualik and Nancy Saunders.
