Linda Duvall is a Canadian visual artist whose work exists at the intersection of collaboration, performance and conversation. Her hybrid practice addresses recurring themes of connection to place, grief and loss, and the many meanings of exclusion and absence. She spends extensive time alone on the land where she lives south of Saskatoon, responding to this barren prairie environment with a series of private gestures and personal responses. Some actions are practical and potentially useful, like the planting of 12,000 trees. Others are more ephemeral and seemingly futile, like burning birthday candles embedded in snow, or stroking sage plants poking out of the snow. She has shown lots of places, and went to school more than was probably healthy.
