Kettle Kettle

Born aboard the Hudson Bay Company supply ship, Nascopie, in 1940, Kakulu Saggiaktok moved into Cape Dorset as a child and began to draw in the 1960s during the early years of the print program at the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative. She often explores themes of transformation, animal life, and the spiritual, and combines her expressive style with a visual wit and occasional flashes of humour. Kettle is one such example where she weaves together geese, fish, and an inanimate object – a kettle – into a singular, bold form. The image evokes the supernatural and interconnectedness of being.
