Megan Heeres: Landscapes for Later

Megan Heeres:
Landscapes for Later
April 3 – April 30, 2021

Matéria in collaboration with Eugenie is pleased to present Megan Heeres’ Landscapes for Later.  The installation will be on view throughout the month of April, with additional installation The Rhythm of Rust and works by the artist presented in our EDITION space as well.

Landscapes for Later is about materials and the land from which we extract these materials. Many of the materials are discards, found in unwanted or cast-off landscapes from Michigan to New Mexico, whether they be “invasive” plants, car parts, or the tape we use to mark trees to be removed. I find hope in imagining new landscapes and ways of being that encompass the undesirable and complicated. Through this work, I am honoring both the beauty and challenge of how we tend our places and one another.”


A native Michigander, Megan Heeres returned home from the West Coast in 2007 to study at Cranbrook Academy of Art where she earned her Master of Fine Art in 2009. Megan has been involved in the Detroit arts community for over twelve years as an advocate, volunteer, and teacher, all roles she plays currently with her Invasive Paper Project.  She participates in projects locally and nationally, most recently at the Max M. Fisher Center in Detroit and the Salina Art Center in Kansas. Megan has been an artist-in-residence at the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences, the Michele Schara Residency at the Brightmoor Makerspace, the Ragdale Foundation, the Women’s International Study Center and the Santa Fe Art Institute.
