Aidan Moesby is an artist curator working at the intersection of art, health and technology. His current work investigates the dual crises of Climate Change and Mental Health exploring the relationships between the outer physical weather and internal psycho-emotional weather.
‘I was Naked, Smelling of Rain’ is a performance exploring absence, presence, loneliness and dis/connectedness through the lens of weather, climate change and wellbeing. A resident at Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, Bristol he increasingly makes large scale, tourable works including Sagacity: The Periodic Table of Emotions, an interactive digital installation.
Site or context-specific interventions serve as a catalyst for a socially-engaged conversation and personal or communal exploration. Discussions provide the core for the curation of public events, seminars and forums to specifically engage a non-art audience and explore the work in a wider context. This diversification and cross-pollination is integral to my overall practice.
His practice includes Disability Arts and mainstream representation, as a disabled curator and visual artist. Within arts and health Moesby is particularly interested in mental health and wellbeing including the wider contexts of disability and diversity. He regularly participates in panel discussions, presents at conferences, lectures, trains and facilitates groups and discussions.
He has worked, exhibited and curated nationally and internationally working with partners such as MIMA, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Unlimited (UK), Institute 17 (CDMX), Kulttuuri Kauppila (SUO), and Zacheta National Gallery(Poland) WIP: Stockholm, The Tetley, DASH, New Media Scotland, ANAT, Watershed, and The Sick of the Fringe.
