Biography

Francis Marion Moseley Wilson is a multidisciplinary artist who works primarily with digital media, live/body art, and taxidermy. She has performed at festivals and institutions internationally, including Chicago’s Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival; Montreal, arts-interculturels (MAI)’s Prendre Place/Taking Place; and Guerrilla Zoo presents: Modern Panic X in London. She works closely with themes of risk, intimacy, vulnerability, and grief, particularly as it pertains to interspecies, material bodies in the current geopolitical era.
