The intriguing “Shaman Revealed” comes from the legend of Kiviuq, the eternal wanderer and hero of many epic stories told across the Arctic. Kiviuq encounters many obstacles and mysteries that he must deal with on his journey, and Ningeokuluk has given one of them – a fox in human form – a very modern device for revealing her true self.
“A couple of years ago I made Shaman Revealed, a drawing that was based on the Kiviuq legend of a woman turning into a fox. I wanted to show how people could change from one thing to another but still be the same person. A zipper came to mind and I thought, that’s a really nice idea, so I used the zipper to show how they change.”
