Lily Moebes is an interdisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, NY. Her work enmeshes woven, painted, and built forms to examine how notions of safety, home, and mental health operate in the context of the post-traumatic body. Her use of materials is motivated by a (sometimes misguided) desire to prove the body through its indexical traces and the grounds on which they occur. A student of craft tradition and methodology, Moebes uses quilting and weaving to imagine how practices of collectivity and repair might aid in the construction of new selves from fragments, part-objects, and the pieces that violence leaves behind.
My last name is pronounced moe (the lawn) - beez (the bugs)
