Gallery 1C03: KATINNGAK AND I’M TIRED Solo Exhibitions, June 20 - August 5

GALLERY 1C03 PRESENTS TWO SOLO EXHIBITIONS:

KATINNGAK BY MARK IGLOLIORTE AND I'M TIRED BY MARK BENNETT

CURATOR: FRANCHESCA HEBERT-SPENCE

June 20 – August 5, 2022

Mark Igloliorte's exhibition katinngak features new and recent sculptural installations in conversation with video work from earlier in his career. With a heavy emphasis on process, repetition, and experimentation, Igloliorte weaves together concepts and themes that include observational engagement, skateboard culture and public space, and language. Mark Igloliorte is a Nunatsiavut artist, essayist and educator. His methodology also acts as a pedagogy when navigating colonial institutions, activating public space and his own journey learning Inuktitut.

Toronto-based Inuk designer Mark Bennett premieres his work in Winnipeg with I'm Tired, a vinyl wall art installation. Bennett reflects on burnout within the arts, explores the importance of digital communications as a tool for community building in the absence of in-person gatherings and underscores the vital need for critical discussions around identity, community responsibility and institutional pressures.

GALLERY HOURS

Monday - Friday between 1:00 and 4:00 pm from June 20 – August 5, 2022 (closed July 1 and August 1).

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
Gallery 1C03 is on Treaty 1 Territory. We are located on the territories of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. Our water is sourced from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation.

katinngak and I'm Tired are presented in conjunction with the Inuit Studies Conference 2022: Auviqsaqtut which takes place at The University of Winnipeg and Qaumajuq/Winnipeg Art Gallery from June 19 – 22. Auviqsaqtut [Ouuuv-vick-suk-took] can be translated to cutting blocks to make an iglu, or working together to build an iglu. Auviqsaqtuq evokes themes of collaboration, Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit, sharing intergenerational knowledge, and building something together.

Gallery 1C03 is grateful to Auviqsaqtut, The Space Between Us, Aabijijiwan Media Lab and Kishaadigeh Collaborative Research Centre, and Inuit Futures in Arts Leadership for their financial support which has made this exhibition possible.
