Presented as part of the Liverpool Biennial touring programme, this selection of drawings by Annie Pootoogook at Touchstones Rochdale challenges conventional expectations of Inuit art. Pootoogook’s drawings serve as a diary of the artist’s life and chronicle the everyday events of modern Inuit life in the small community of Kinngait, Cape Dorset as she saw it. Immediate and direct in style, they depict poignant moments of emotion or violence in intimate domestic environments.
