Morgan (she/her) is an interdisciplinary artist and cultivator based in Toronto and Vancouver. Her practice reflects themes of feminist queer histories, collective memory and exploring the materiality of moving images by using organic film developers. Investigating the use of analog film both as a form of projected image and as a sculptural material, her research focuses on how lived experiences inform queer aesthetics and articulations of memory and gender. Using plant-based film developers (also known as eco-processing) requires the artist to work directly with the film, which results in an intimate collaboration among material, concept, and aesthetic. Bridging eco-processing, experimental film and queer history (both personal and political) she aims to create intimate experiences for viewers to expand their ideas of queer space and time.
She has exhibited her works in Toronto, Kingston and internationally and was the recipient of the Roloff Beny Award in 2022, Pandora Y. H. Ho Memorial Award and the Artscape Youngplace Career Launcher in 2017.
In support of her artwork, Morgan has received grants from the Ontario Arts Council including the Chalmers Professional Development grant and the Career Catalyst in 2021. Morgan was a founding member of The Rude Collective, a queer arts collective amplifying voices of marginalized queer folks in Toronto. She is currently a graduate student in the Visual Arts program at the University of British Columbia.
