SOLD OUT | Annie Pootoogook


This catalogue accompanied Annie Pootoogook's first solo exhibition at The Power Plant, curated by Nancy Campbell in 2006. This exhibition was also the artist’s debut exhibition in a public institution. This full-colour publication includes detailed images of her drawings – printed with such vivid detail that the strokes of her pencil crayon are visible. Curator Campbell's essay links the artists of West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative, founded in the 1950s, with today's artistic production in Cape Dorset. Moreover, Pootoogook's history is mapped out – how she began drawing, and what she decided to depict in her pencil crayon and ink images – creating compositions of domestic and camp interiors culled from her memory. The images found in this catalogue combine the mythical, communal, and at times harsh reality of culture and life in Canada's Arctic.
