Aggat (Open Edition)
Gayle Uyagaqi Kabloona is a ceramicist, printmaker and writer currently residing in Ottawa, Ontario. Her practice is based on family legacy, Inuit identity and contemporary indigenous expression. She recently co-founded a small group ceramics studio and has been teaching using art therapy techniques at Mamisarvik Healing Centre for two years.
"Aggat means ‘hand’ in Inuktitut. My work regularly features hands with traditional tattoos. I feel happiest when I’m creating and come from a legacy of skilled Inuit."
