Where are you from?
France and Quebec.
What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?
Yes this is my first visit. A love of Inuit Art.
Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?
The Siren and Beluga is my favorite. The smooth contours which made me wonder about the story. The curves are very nice – beauty of the beast. Philosophy behind the art.
