Where are you from?

Mississauga, ON

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

Interest in Inuit art due to its melancholic nature.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I found it both terrifying, titillating and awe-inspiring – moving me from my general depressive state to a melancholic one.
