ZACHARIUS KUNUK: DOG TEAM

In nearly thirty-five years of video making, Inuk director and producer Zacharias Kunuk has used art to combat the encroachment of colonialism, chronicling his culture’s history while reviving and maintaining many aspects of its customs in the production of his works. In Dog Team, a new commission for the RIC’s Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall, Kunuk captures a traditional way of being from a distinctly contemporary perspective—offering a unique vantage point of perseverance and resistance.
