Kakulu Saggiaktok is a graphic artist from Kinngait (Cape Dorset), NU. She has been working out of the studios in Kinngait since the 1960s and has had work featured in numerous Cape Dorset Annual Print Collections since 1966. Her practice is informed by childhood memories of living on the land, and of Arctic wildlife and animals. Saggiaktok’s work has been featured in international exhibitions, and is held in prominent public collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.View Long Biography and Citations
