Manasie Akpaliapik was born in 1955 in a hunting camp near Ikpiarjuk (Arctic Bay), Nunavut, on north Baffin Island. He spent his youth in Arctic Bay, relocated to Montreal, then settled in Toronto where he created all of these carvings. Now based in Ottawa and Montreal, Manasie is known for his animated and ambitious sculptures that sympathetically utilize the unique material and structure of bone, ivory and stone. Deeply connected to the culture and traditions of the Arctic, his works reflect a concern for the vulnerability of his homeland. They offer unflinching depictions of social ills that have impacted northern communities and reflect the belief that humans must live in balance with and respect all living things.
Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario.
This exhibition is included with general admission.
