Annie Pootoogook's Inuit Drawings

'This girl from Kinngait was just making such impactful, simple drawings that she really forced change'

Serving as a diary of her life, Annie Pootoogook’s graphic drawings act as a chronicle of her struggles with addiction and abuse as well as documenting the delicate relationships shared with those closest to her. Watch as curator Nancy Campbell discusses how the artist's confident and emotive drawings changed the tradition of Inuit art and delivered them to a new audience.

Annie Pootoogook is on view at Touchstones Rochdale, 13 July – 21 September 2019 as part of the Liverpool Biennial touring programme.
