Messages from the Rocks – Stories of the Invisible

Linda Duvall and Jillian McDonald’s project Messages from the Rocks – Stories of the Invisible empowers the public as co-creators to imagine and share stories of the unseen forces that animate the land through walks, drawing, and creating a Field Guide to the Invisible.
This project activates audiences through various means, such as walks, storytelling, drawing and questions. Extending beyond the gallery, the artists invite the public to join them for "nature walks" that direct attention to animals that we may not normally observe, spirits that live on the land and the un-observable slowness of geological change.
Their projects outside the gallery include posters and flags that direct people's attention to the unseen and unexplainable in the environment around us. These flags are printed with wildlife trail cam images that have been discarded by scientists because they failed to photograph the animals being studied. Instead, the artists present a new way of viewing the scientifically worthless images - light flares, blurs and copious foliage - as starting points to imagine what might be.
The transformative power of imagination and privileging non-Western systems of knowledge will take place in the gallery as well. The artists have prepared trail cam photographs featuring an "uncinematic miasma" for gallery visitors to draw on and imagine the unseen.
The limited-edition field guide, based on traditional field guides to the natural world, will serve as an exhibition in itself and evidence of the collaborative activities developed by the artists at The Art Gallery of Regina. It will include a entries on invisible but deeply felt encounters created in collaboration with community members.
Many cultures around the world have stories about the spirits and creatures who live in the land. Have you felt a connection with the non-human or something you cannot wholly understand while spending time in nature? Have you discovered a passageway in or around Regina, such as in land or water? Real or imagined, seen or unseen, fantasy or fact. Is there something you have seen in Wascana Lake, for example? Did you sense something watching you, though you couldn't see it? The answers to these questions will inform this guide.
Public activities will begin with a flag-raising ceremony at the termination of the Cathedral Village Arts Festival parade on Monday, May 23 at the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre (2420 Elphinstone Street).
