Ningiukulu Teevee’s graphic drawings explore the relationship between abstraction and representation, particularly the interplay of patterns found in nature. Her work takes inspiration from traditional stories as well as the changes she sees around her in contemporary Cape Dorset. The exhibition includes 28 drawings and a group of six photographs documenting the artist, her work, and her home community. Also featured is a new video about the artist, produced specifically for the exhibition.
