Breathing Hole

This new work by Inuvialuk artist Maureen Gruben, called Breathing Hole, is made up of 18,000 sealskin pins hand-fixed onto 40 squares of Dricore insulation. It forms part of a new exhibit, called Subsist, that opens at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Saturday, Nov. 30. “The exhibition explores the controversy of the seal hunt, western globalization policies and the historical and contemporary impacts of colonialism on land and health determinants for Indigenous peoples in Canada,” according to a news release. Other artists featured in the exhibit include Mark Igloliorte, Dana Claxton, Andrew Qappik and Omalluq Oshutsiaq. (Photo courtesy of the Winnipeg Art Gallery)
