In her native Canada and beyond, the artist Liz Magor (b. 1948) is regarded as one of the most influential contemporary sculptors; the oeuvre she has built since the 1970s has guided an entire generation of younger artists. Her art investigates the culture of production and value and the associated ambivalent relationship humans have with consumer goods. Her works have been shown in various solo exhibitions around the world, e.g. at Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal (2016) and Centre d'art contemporain d'Ivry (le Crédac) in Paris (2016).
