Meech Boakye (Hon. B.A. in Visual Studies from the University of Toronto) is an artist and writer currently based in Portland, Oregon. Their practice is rooted in relationships with floral, fungal, and microbial kin as armatures for learning how to be in community. Material research functions as a formal conduit for remediation from extractive landscapes while relational works attempt to imagine speculative futures embedded in care. Works are suspended in gelatin biopolymers; fed, aged, shared; digested in stomachs or piles of hot compost; coded, or are collaboratively written with friends and neural-network AI.
