Lucy interviews Nancy (Niap) Saunders in her art studio while she paints and talks about her artistic side of life. LIVE on February 27, 2020.
Niap (Nancy Saunders) is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist whose work has been collected by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Avataq Cultural Institute among others. Based in Montreal, QC, the artist divides her time between the city and her home community of Kuujjuaq, Nunavik—a place that continues to deeply influence her work. Working across media, Niap thoughtfully investigates her cultural heritage through her practice. In 2018, Niap was the recipient of the IAF's Virginia J. Watt Scholarship.
