The Artist’s Vision
Jennie designed her room with her black and white photography in mind, and also displayed her love for kakiniit, Inuit tattoos. She has included a series of black and white photos that show Labrador Inuit living in Nunatsiavut, and also Labrador Inuit living in the city of St.John’s, NL. She is also a seamstress and sewed the curtains and the kakiniit pillow herself.
Along with her cousin Julia Andersen, they painted the Inuit tattoo mural on the wall in the room. She wanted to include this series of photos in the room so that people visiting from Labrador would feel more comfortable seeing some familiar faces and landscapes from their home communities and also to make them feel more at home.
