Duane Linklater | Untitled
2016 | nine digital prints on archival paper | 11.5 x 10 x 0.25 in
This powerful work by Duane Linklater carries a layered relationship to land, to its use and value, and to whom has the right to claim it. There are nine exquisitely printed and identical photographs stacked into one. Each represents Linklater standing above Robert Smithson’s iconic land artwork Spiral Jetty. Linklater places his body in disruption of a clear view of the historic work while centering his gaze and the camera frame directly on it.
