Playing Favourites is a running series featuring MIA visitors, staff and volunteers with their favorite objects in our collection.  Playing Favourites is open to every person at MIA, so please let us know if you’d like to participate the next time you visit.

MIA visitor Cathy O. with “Iqaluulamiluuq Playing with Octopus ” (2008) by Mattiusi Iyaituk (1950 – ), Nunavik, Stone, Caribou Antler, Sprott/MIA Collection

Where are you from?

Melbourne, Australia

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

Yes.  Rain.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

It’s beautiful, but I also like the sea goddess stories.  I wish I knew what the creature playing with the octopus was (see name of piece).
