Jade Na­so­galuak Car­pen­ter

Inuit Art Quarterly - - CONTRIBUTO­RS -

is an Inuk artist based in Calgary, born in Yel­lowknife and raised in Ed­mon­ton.

She uses art and hu­mour as a cop­ing mech­a­nism to subtly ad­dress di­as­pora and to openly ad­dress men­tal ill­ness. The light­hearted na­ture of her prac­tice ex­tends ges­tures of em­pa­thy and sol­i­dar­ity. Th­ese in­ter­ests in­vite a re­con­sid­er­a­tion of the per­cep­tions of con­tem­po­rary Indi­gene­ity and counter the stig­ma­tism sur­round­ing men­tal health.
