Margaux Crump

About

Margaux Crump is an American artist whose objects, drawings, and texts tease out the slippery relationship between power, intimacy, and desire.

 
 

My work explores the slippery relationships between power, desire, and intimacy. It questions the power structures behind cultural constructions of gender and our ideological conceptions of what is natural. I’m interested in deconstructing hierarchical and binary thinking by considering other systems that allow for a more complex spectrum of experience. By blurring the visual and conceptual distinctions between what is plant, animal and human, my work reveals points of overlap — moments wherein we might catch glimpses of ourselves in the ‘other.’
