Marguerite Kahrl is an artist and designer who employs a wide range of interdisciplinary practices, processes, and media to facilitate new forms of inquiry into the relationship between “humans” and “nature.” Her resulting on-site projects, relational objects, and studio works explore, propose and participate in alternatives to given cultural models.

Kahrl’s projects are influenced by permaculture, a land management philosophy, and settlement design that mimics natural ecosystems’ resilience, complexity, and balance to integrate human activity with natural surroundings. This ethic of care stands as a radical alternative to the mechanisms of exploitation and consumption that drive excess, waste, and destruction in the contemporary world.
