Mara Eagle

Mara Eagle is an American artist living and working in Montréal since 2012. Drawing from the history of science and feminist studies, her work explores the historical contingency of the concept of nature, and envisions the possibility of growth and regeneration following the dissolution of the categories of nature, technology and the human. In June of 2020 her work was exhibited at the Montréal Museum of Contemporary Art. Other recent exhibitions include group shows at Critical Distance, the University of Kentucky Art Museum, Centre Clark, Printemps Numérique, Studio XX, Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery, and Saw Video Media Centre. Her research has been generously supported by the Berggruen Institute, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture, and the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation

in liquid Water on a liquid Planet, the first Body was a Body. slow. gelatinous. undifferentiated. colloidal. protoplasmic. mud. i was that Body. i, you said. the second Body was a Body. yours. yours, i said. buffeted by nervous Contagion. fusion. ecstatic proliferation. osmotic ingestion. you were gelatinous. chain reaction. undifferentiated. colloidal. you were an amoebic Swarm. i remember you. you said soft and glistening. you, i said, were a rainbow Crust.


all was a hypertrophied state of surface. but Skin was not an envelope. skin was not barrier. Skin was not liminal space. Skin was Place. volcanic. tectonic. sweeping. there was no inner and no outer, only continuously churning sweeping Folds of elated and spasming Skin. a Skinthat muttered and spoke. a Skin that tingled with thoughts and Memories. it was Skin that begot the Rocks and the Oceans. the Mountains and the Rivers. the Insects and the Birds. and we, the old Souls of Song, with skin Tongues and Meat Voices sang 4 billion years of forgotten Lagoons. carpeted depths inscribed with the lurid tales of floral Mutants. meandering: our Parts spread into thickening Worlds of dream flesh
