Margaux Crump

Margaux Crump is an interdisciplinary artist who explores the slippery relationship between power and the body—specifically how it manifests in language, taxonomy, and intimacy. Currently, her practice examines the constructs of gender and nature, focusing on hunting and courting as a way to trace the complex movements of power between bodies.
She has exhibited nationally, most notably at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, Saint Louis; The Corcoran School of the Arts and Design, Washington, DC; Women & Their Work, Austin, TX; and Artspace, Raleigh, NC. She received her BA from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX and her MFA from Washington University in St. Louis, MO.
Margaux was born in 1989 under a dark moon and is based in Houston, TX. She enjoys long walks, the smell of musky roses, playing with kittens, and perusing the grocery store for phallic produce.
The book mentioned in the interview was Braiding Sweetgrass.
