Brian Jungen and Duane Linklater: Modest Livelihood

October 26, 2013 – June 15, 2014

Signy Eaton Gallery

Brian Jungen and Duane Linklater’s collaborative film Modest Livelihood (2012) will make its Ontario premier this October at the AGO. The film is concerned with the use and self-determination of native land. Both its creators are indigenous artists: Jungen, internationally recognized for his sculptures, is DaneZaa, while Linklater, who has been working with moving image and performance to portray Native oral histories and learning methods, is Omaskêko Cree. Jungen and Linklater hunted together unsuccessfully for a moose in northern Ontario in the early stages of their collaboration on Modest Livelihood, which they directed and performed in.
