Creative Expression

E-mail Print PDF

As a documentary photographer, Louise Abbott has had the pleasure of visiting other artists in different parts of the world. In addition to producing portraits of them, she has captured details of them at work—details that reflect the artists and their desire, indeed need, for creative expression. She continues to work gradually on her series and shows images from it at intervals at Studio Georgeville in Georgeville, Quebec.

An exhibition of photos by Louise Abbott and Niels Jensen  

and five short documentary films by Louise Abbott

Le Vieux Forgeron, Stanstead, QC

Thursday, July 11-Sunday, July 28, 2019

Vernissage: Saturday, July 13, 2019

The hamlet of Arviat lies on the western shore of Hudson Bay 260 kilometres north of Churchill, Manitoba. It is the southernmost Inuit community in Nunavut. It is also considered the most traditional. “Country food” produced by hunting and fishing remains the primary source of sustenance for local inhabitants. 

In exploring Arviat and its surroundings, Louise Abbott and Niels Jensen photographed a wide range of subject matter—from ancient archaeological sites and modern-day Inuksuit to portraits and wildlife studies. Their exhibition reflects the way in which the past and present co-exist for the inhabitants of this northern outpost. It includes 5 short documentaries produced by Louise Abbott for the CRIIM (Cultural Resources Inventory and Interpretive Materials) Project sponsored by NTI (Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated).
