Jennifer Moon (they/she; b. 1973, Lafayette, Indiana; lives and works in Los Angeles) is an interdisciplinary life-artist whose work investigates the co-production of organizing systems (social systems, institutional structures, power relations, scientific theories, emotional frameworks, etc.) and how these various systems are entangled, co-constituted, performed, and perpetuated through bodies (human, nonhuman, material, immaterial). Drawing from queer life, science, self-help, popular culture, the deeply personal, and fantasy, Moon’s work mobilizes possibilities to reconfigure our relationship to power, to reignite the social and political imaginaries, and to stimulate change beyond binaries, hierarchies, and capital.
