Ottawa’s National Gallery sports banner featuring Iqaluit artist

The National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa remains closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but you can still see this banner on the side of the building, which includes a photograph from Nunavut artists Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory and Jamie Griffiths for their film, “Silaup Putunga” (Inside the Hole in the Universe.) The video installation of “Silaup Putunga Iluanni” has been added to the permanent collection at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto but was never installed at the National Gallery, said Griffiths of Chickweed Arts, a company based in Iqaluit that produces photography, film and videos.
