“A New Generation” Print and "Tongues North Star Remixes" on neon coral vinyl.
The "A New Generation" print is a reflection of Inuit women reclaiming generational strengths. It is a representation of our mothers carrying us in the womb, as well, ourselves carrying the next generation. It is a reflection of us, carrying a new generation that is absent of any experience of abuse. It is us, tending to the children that our grandmothers were, tending to the children that our mothers were, and who we were. It is us fiercely protecting our babies. For the centrepiece, I have used fish leather. This is located where the womb would carry a child.
