Jade Nasogaluak Carpenter
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.
