Project


retail art programme

NAMARA has been working with Canada Goose to bring art into their retail environments since 2017. We fulfill the client’s mandate to share Inuit art, and narratives around the Arctic experience through the inclusion of artwork by Canadian and Inuit artists. Additionally, we feature international artists whose work is relevant to regional audiences, and large-scale special projects for select locations. We love this project because it brings meaningful art to diverse audiences in unexpected spaces.

Etched by Tutuiza Jaw, Cee Pootoogook, and Qavavau Manumie.

Decorated Walrus: Dorset is known for its walrus hunters; the walrus meat has sustained the community for as far back as can be remembered and when nobody gets beluga they will come back with a walrus.

Hand With Feathers: Baffin version of the Goose wife who got homesick and put feathers under her fingernails and flew away with her two children.

Figure with Hair Turning into Feathers: This legend is one of Ning’s original creations and is about a woman, who when she becomes mischievous, transforms herself into a raven.
