Maggie is an interdisciplinary artist whose works are personal, political, and experimental, rooted paradoxically in action and meditation.Her work addresses her abject experience of having a female body, concurrent with themes of power, violence, healing, and connection. The work is her visual record of surviving psychological trauma. It is based on personal experience, as well as theoretical, philosophical, spiritual, and scientific research of how identity is formed, and recovered when it fails to develop appropriately from trauma and subsequent PTSD. Her work asks the question: what happens when the female body encounters the world? What is the internal landscape of my female experience? Through a lens- and performance-based practice, Maggie explores the space in which identity occurs, is corporealized, and sited. She conjures, captures or visually describes the energy of thought, memory, experience, presence, and interaction—the details of beingness that add up to reality and identity. As an action-based arts researcher, Maggie loves the immediacy of performance, and the connection of herself to the audience; she also loves the stillness and meditation of the photographic frame. Maggie’s work has been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Germany, Norway, Sweden, and Mexico, as well as in multiple US states. For more information, please visit maehymn.com. Maggie is a founding member and one-third of the SPOOKY BOOBS COLLECTIVE, a feminist art collective that uses design, performance and installation to visualize the trivialization of women’s experiences. Outside of the fine arts sphere, Maggie is a documentary wedding photographer, filmmaker and band nerd. She likes reading books, Australian history, local theatre, dark beers, black boots, Black Books, and cats. Follow her on Instagram for a ridiculous mix of all these things.
