Dragonfly (Robin LaVerne Wilson), 2023 Virtual
Dragonfly is also Robin LaVerne Wilson [and alter ego Miss Justice Jester]–multidisciplinary conceptual trickster artist who alchemizes spectacle, ritual, text, visuals, music and activism to educate, [re]create and [re]store the human archive. I also vacillate between first- and third-person in my bio and accept all pronouns offered respectfully. She is a Franklin Furnace 2021 grant recipient, and her performance series ABSCONDED PROJECT has been featured in Ecumenica, Performance Art Journal, Hyperallergic, and Brooklyn Rail. Her work as lead artist has been presented at Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University [California], Theatre Neumarkt [Zurich], Cabaret Voltaire [Zurich], Jack NYC, Hemispheric Institute [NYC], and DreamWeek [San Antonio].
