“INUIT GAMES AND THROAT SINGING OF ARCTIC QUEBEC”
The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, with the support of Avataq Cultural Institute, is presenting a unique exhibition of Inuit artworks inspired by Katajjaniq, the throat-singing of Nunavik women (Arctic Quebec), chosen from its collection and from ethnomusicologist Jean-Jacques Nattiez’s. Carvings and prints, together with a contemporary installation by Nancy Saunders, bear witness to the importance of this musical game: two women, their face in close proximity, confront each other in a friendly manner, producing alternately high-pitched and low-pitched tones until one of the two slips up.
