We are so excited to have Maureen Gruben joining us for the next 10 days as the SOVA Artist-in-Residence. Maureen was born and raised in Tuktoyaktuk, NT; she creates multidisciplinary works that share intimate perspectives on contemporary life in the Western Arctic. Also joining us is Maureen's collaborator; curator, and writer, Kyra Kordoski.
The photograph below is of Stitching My Landscape (2017), a large-scale work of land art consisting of 111 ice holes connected with red broadcloth on an expanse of the frozen ocean surrounding Ibyuq Pingo, southwest of Tuktoyaktuk.
Welcome Maureen and Kyra!
