Peel Art Gallery Museum and Archives: Katherine Takpannie, One

September 8, 2021 - January 3, 2021

Inuk photographer Katherine Takpannie takes center stage on PAMA's outdoor banners. Seen from behind, she is a solitary figure enveloped by the whiteness of a snow-covered, winter landscape

Evoking a sense of meditative calm in which the female figure becomes one with her surrounding, Takpannie is reflecting on the connection of the Inuit people to the sublime land, and the female body in its reproductive state as mother nature. Takpannie who is pregnant with her first child signals the dawn of new life through her amautik (a mother's parka).
