Angel Lartigue is a curatorial and artistic researcher born and raised in Houston Texas. Lartigue’s work explores the relationship between the body and land through the use of “putrefaction” matter as raw material. This concentration has led her to experimenting with archaeological processes of decomposition into artworks, incorporating fungi, insects, and even odors captured during fieldwork, including research training in human remains recovery at Texas’ Forensic Anthropology Center’s “body farm” in 2018.
