MIA visitor Eriko M. with “Migration” (1976) by Joe Talirunili, Puvirnituq, stone, wood, hide, thread, Private Collection.

Where are you from?

Originally from Japan, now living in Toronto.

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

Just walked by. Yes, my first visit.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

It touched me in a very primitive and simple way. It brought me back to a very deep place, dark but somewhat full of life.
