Note: “Tuu’luq’s...artistic vision… celebrates the eternal recurrence of life and the conviction that what the Inuit dread most –extinction- will not occur. We see this in the mythological landscapes that she creates, brimming with Inuit, animals, vegetation and spirits. It is a landscape of memory, memorialized in a contemporary aesthetic visual statement that reaffirms the essence of her ‘Inuitness’ with impunity.” Marion Tuu’luq, National Gallery of Canada, 2002, Marie Bouchard, Pg. 19
