ABOUT THE ARTIST

Gear is a filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist of mixed Inuit ancestry (Nunatsiavut), originally from Corner Brook Newfoundland and currently based in Montréal, Québec. His work delves into the relationships between people, animals, and land, rethinking the spaces in which history, hope and Inuit knowledge may thrive. The artist is featured in INUA, the inaugural exhibition of Qaumajuq at the WAG, and was long-listed for the 2021 Sobey Art Awards

Gear was also one of the artists commissioned by Think Shift Inc. and APTN to create a design for the 2021 Indigenous Day Live event (pictured below). The event can be streamed with a free trial of APTN Lumi.
