Biography

Mara Eagle is an American artist based in Montreal working in a wide range of media. She pulls intuitively from the world of pop-culture, the Internet, and technology industries to create enigmatic work exploring the ways in which Western philosophy and science have formulated a concept of nature that is amenable to industrialization and exploitation. Mara Eagle holds a Bachelor of Arts from Marlboro College (Vermont) and is a candidate in the Master of Fine Arts program at Concordia University (Montreal). Recently her work has been exhibited at Critical Distance, the University of Kentucky Art Museum, Centre Clark, Printemps Numérique, HTMLLES at Studio XX, Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery, and at Saw Video Media Centre in Ottawa. Her research has been generously supported by the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FRQSC), and the Berggruen Institute.
