Hot Art: Throw Down at Gallery TPW

MARCH 1 TO 31 It’s safe to say that Linda Duvall’s latest video installation has already knocked—or would that be thrown?—a few people off their feet. Showing at Gallery TPW, the Saskatoon media artist’s new project, dubbed The Toss, records her efforts to learn the fine art of pitching other people to the ground. A product of extensive research and training with the likes of Hollywood stunt actors and self-defense coaches, the work allows Duvall to take on the role of sociologist, engineering encounters and deconstructing the implications of what, literally, goes down.
