On March 11th we opened Shuvinai Ashoona’s latest show Curiosities. Continuing with Shuvinai’s constant exploration of imaginary scenes, this show taps into her familiar themes of globes, monsters, and traditional scenes along with the introduction of bones.
Shuvinai was present for the exhibition along with Joemie Takpaungai, who assisted the artist translating some of her ideas in Inuktitut. After a brief introduction by Pat Feheley, Shuvinai answered questions about the drawings and her methods directly to visitors on a one on one basis. Following the talk, the artist was presented with a certificate from the Royal Academy of Arts, to which she was elected.
