Alana Bartol comes from a long line of water witches. Her site-responsive works explore divination as a way to question consumption-driven relationships to land, water, and what are known as 'natural resources'. Through her work, she creates relationships between the personal sphere and the landscape, particular to this time of ecological crisis. A multidisciplinary artist with a BFA from the University of Windsor and an MFA in Sculpture from Detroit’s Wayne State University, her work has been presented in festivals and galleries nationally and internationally. In 2019, she was longlisted for the Sobey Art Award representing Prairies and North. Of Scottish, German, English, French, Irish, and Danish ancestry, Bartol is a settler Canadian currently living and working in Treaty 7 territory in Mohkínstsis (Calgary), Alberta where she teaches at Alberta University of the Arts.
