Rebecca La Marre is a queer Canadian artist with a writing, research and performance practice.  Her research investigates how ritual, desire and technologies like language can shape bodies, and what that contributes to an experience of being a person.  Her performances are driven by what she reads and make use of materials that include the human voice, text, and clay.

Her work is exhibited and published internationally. Venues include the Serpentine Gallery MOMA PS1, and the Darling Foundry. Her writing has been published in journals and periodicals including the Organism for Poetic Research, Poetry is Dead, and Through Europe. She is an emeritus commissioning editor for E.R.O.S. Journal.

She holds a Masters in Art Writing from Goldsmiths, University of London, and has been the recipient of funding from The British Arts Council, The Québec Council for the Arts, and the Federal Government of Canada. She works as the editor and publications coordinator at Remai Modern in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
