Megan Lucille Boettcher
Megan Lucille Boettcher is an American artist currently pursuing her Master of Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art. While her current projects mainly utilise performance, video, photography, and installation, Boettcher works in a variety of media, revolving around her desire to best communicate and discuss the difficult subject matters at the centre of her practice. Drawing from a reservoir of personal experiences as her catalyst, Boettcher challenges her own vulnerability by exposing ‘ugly’ and traumatic histories and experiences and the intimate places their residues reside. Through her work, Boettcher seeks to enable a process of healing and encourage discussion of shared experience, fostering broader conversations around personal, communal, and societal transgressions while desiring action, from which healing and change may emerge as potential outcomes.
