Alana Bartol comes from a long line of water witches. Through performance, photography, sculpture, drawing, and video, her site-responsive works explore walking and divination as ways of understanding across places, species, and bodies. Bartol’s work has been screened and presented across Canada at Walter Phillips Gallery (Banff); InterAccess (Toronto); PlugIn Institute for Contemporary Art (Winnipeg); Access Gallery (Vancouver); M:ST Performative Arts Festival (Calgary); Art Gallery of Windsor; and Group Intervention Vidéo (Montréal), as well as in Romania, Germany, Mexico and the United States. She currently lives on Treaty 7 territory in Calgary, Alberta where she teaches at Alberta College of Art+Design.
