Linda Duvall is a visual artist whose work exists at the intersection of social conscience, collaboration, performance, and conversation. In most projects, Duvall starts by setting up conditions or a framework and then works with members of her extended communities to develop it. For example, in Where were the Mothers? Duvall hired musicians to work with people who had taken alternative life-paths. Together they wrote one song about
the participant’s mother. For the work Toss, Duvall worked with martial arts experts to recreate a situation in which she was flipped onto the ground by Saskatoon Police. However, in Toss, Duvall changed the outcome and became the one doing the tossing.
