Notes from DaVic Gallery: “I like to challenge myself, thinking what a story would look like in the past, with my imagination,” he said. One of his favourite subjects is Sedna, the sea-woman at the centre of one of the best-known Inuit creation stories. Sedna, Pitsiulak explained, helped sea mammals in trouble and helped feed people. But Pitsiulak created “Edna,” Sedna’s counterpart, who does almost everything better than Sedna. “When someone starts to drown, Edna would rescue the person and bring them back to life. Or if someone saw Edna out on the beach, the person who helps Edna back to the ocean would receive good hunting.” – Nunatsiaq online.
