Born 1991 in Canada.

Based in Toronto, Angel completed her M.A. Art History and Visual Culture (Kunst- und Bildgeschichte) at the Humboldt University of Berlin in 2018. Under the supervision of Dr. Inge Hinterwaldner, her Master's thesis focuses on women's performance art as the locus of historical conceptions of what constitutes "womanhood" as a material, social category, and of the speculations for the future ontology of womanhood through posthuman theory.

She completed her B.A. in Art History and German Studies at the University of Guelph with a thesis supervised by Dr. Amanda Boetzkes, and studied abroad at the University of Konstanz with a scholarship from the Baden-Württemberg Foundation in 2014.

Since 2009, she has worked in public institutions and artist-run-centres in Canada and Germany, including the Art Gallery of Guelph, Ed Video Media Arts Centre, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, and The Power Plant. She has also curated projects in Guelph, Berlin, and Stockholm. Recently she was the Editorial Resident at Canadian Art magazine for production of the Fall 2020 issue.

Her major research interests include abjection and monstrosity, materialities of difference, cybernetics, surveillance politics, psychoanalysis, posthumanism,git materialist feminism, labour history, subcultures, and the legacies of the Cold War system.

Working languages: English, French, German.
