Maggie Groat is a visual artist working in a variety of media including collage, sculpture, artists’ books, site-specific interventions, and field studies. Forming an ongoing research-based practice, Maggie Groat's work explores studies for possible futures, salvage practices, and relationships and reconnections to indigenous land and knowledge systems. Through reconfiguring and recontextualizing found materials, she assembles collages and sculptures that enable moments of envisioning and the potential for action. Maggie studied visual art and philosophy at York University before attending The University of Guelph, where she received an MFA degree in 2010.
She is represented by Erin Stump Projects in Toronto.
