moira williams’ often co-creative practice weaves together performance, bio-art, food, sound, sculpture and walking as a lived experience, while simultaneously connecting and creating opportunities for artists through curatorial projects. moira’s work aims to follow the logic of our symbiotic being in the world we share with bacteria, wild yeast, soil, water, animals, plants and one another. Works are meant to be lived, added to, shifted and moved over time and space – and may flow through moments to years.
moira regularly invites people to reconfigure familiar objects and social events to offer multiple opportunities for building our social imagination, deepening our ecological meanings and questioning systems of power and influence. Intervening in systems often taken for granted, moira approaches culture as something we actively shape together. For moira, participation is about being in service of all bodies; human and non-human and our connections to our world: to participate is to generate empathy and vitality.
moira prefers to be called a person with (dis)abilities or Eco-abilities, thanks!
