Taylor Harder is a Métis-Mennonite artist from Fort St. John, British Columbia and currently based in Mohkinstsis, on Treaty 7 Territory. Utilizing technology, fibre, and found materials they create structures and devices which call back to their place of origin. These objects are hybrids of technology—past and present—artificial and biologically occurring. These devices seek to recontextualize marginalized data and phenomena by revealing potential communication signals from the environment.
They currently serve as Board President of Truck Contemporary Art and sit on the Board of Directors for VOICESt. Taylor is currently completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alberta University of the Arts majoring in Drawing. They have recently exhibited with Sled Island in Getting Ready for My Haunting and have an upcoming zine project for Femme Wave Feminist Arts Festival in collaboration with Nicole Mary and Aracana Shanks. Taylor is also an emerging writer, they have published an exhibition text for Dana Buzzee’s Punishment Rituals.
