Rebecca La Marre is a neurodiverse, queer artist with a writing, making and performance practice. She uses clay, text, and the human voice to give form to questions about what it means to be a person in the world. Her activity is driven by what she reads and a need to test how ideological structures, religious trauma, language, and ritual can shape bodies. The first person to teach her about clay was her grandmother, an artist who exhibited her work in domestic settings and craft markets.
Her work is exhibited and published internationally. Venues include the Serpentine Gallery, MOMA PS1, and the Darling Foundry. Her writing has been published in journals and periodicals including the Happy Hypocrite, Organism for Poetic Research, Poetry is Dead, and Through Europe. She is the former editor and publications coordinator for Remai Modern, an emeritus commissioning editor for E.R.O.S. Journal in London, UK, and founder of Apophony Press in Saskatoon, SK.
She holds a Masters in Art Writing from Goldsmiths, University of London, and is the recipient of funding from SK Arts, The British Arts Council, The Québec Council for the Arts, and the Federal Government of Canada.
