Linda Rae Dornan is an interdisciplinary artist creating video, installation and performance art, and writing. Her work explores visuals, performativity and embodied text about place, memory and being. Language, materiality and ephemerality are the threads woven within her work. Her visual explorations using language have become increasingly non-narrative, evoking interior space, memory and loss. Her performances incorporate words and silence in a durational format. She has won the Strathbutler Award and the Linda Joy Award, has been the recipient of many grants, and has exhibited/screened works across Canada, the United States, China and Europe. She lives in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada.

Artist Orange

Just as a performance artist uses their body as their medium, this is a fragrance composed entirely of the orange tree: fruit, leaves, bark, roots, and flowers. Artist Orange performs itself.
